The Hard Rock Rocksino at Northfield Park enjoyed its winningest month in May.
The racino, located in Northfield, took in $16 million in revenue, up 10 percent from the previous month, the Ohio Lottery Commission reported Monday. The previous record was $15.8 million in March.
Overall, $183.8 million was gambled at the Rocksino last month, up 13 percent from April.
The nearby ThistleDown Racino in North Randall also saw its revenue and amount played increase. The racino took in $10.5 million, up 0.4 percent. Meanwhile, the amount gambled rose 3.9 percent to $115 million.
ThistleDown took in $296 per video lottery terminal — best in the state. The Rocksino took in $230 per machine. The Rocksino has 1,110 more machines than ThistleDown.
The commission’s report showed the revenue at Ohio’s four traditional casinos totaled nearly $71.2 million — up from about $69 million in April. Together the casinos have brought in more than $346 million so far this year.
The month-to-month increases ranged from less than 1 percent at the Toledo casino to just over 5 percent for Columbus, which logged more than $18.3 million in May revenue.
The Toledo casino reported nearly $16.2 million. Horseshoe Cleveland had nearly $19.5 million, and Cincinnati had over $17.1 million.
Compared with the numbers from a year ago, May revenue was higher at the casinos in Columbus and Toledo and lower for Cincinnati and Cleveland.
