March proved to be a record-setting month for Ohio’s casinos and racinos.
Gaming revenue for casinos and racinos in March reached a record total $216.2 million for the month, according to data from the Ohio Casino Control Commission and the Ohio Lottery Commission. Revenue for licensed casinos in Ohio reached $93.3 million in March while racino revenue totaled $122.9 million. The total equals customers’ money obtained by the gambling venues after payouts, but before state taxes and fees.
The total tops the previous record for any month of March, which was the $215.9 million generated last year.

In February, combined revenue for Ohio casinos and racinos totaled a record for that month of $178.8 million, which topped the former record of $171.4 million set in February 2020. Last year, gambling venues were required during the month of February to operate under a temporary overnight curfew imposed by Gov. Mike DeWine in an effort to deal with COVID-19 concerns.
Ohio’s 11 casinos and racinos have brought in $566 million in gambling revenue over the first three months of 2022.
