US.- Casinos and racinos in Ohio saw record GGR in March, with the best performance ever recorded since legal gambling was introduced in the state.
According to the figures, the state’s four casinos and seven racinos reported combined gross gaming revenue (GGR) of $215.8m.
The four casinos took over $91.6m, 8.7 per cent more than the previous record set in March 2013. The racinos, which weren’t open when that record was set, took $124.2m last month.
The American Gaming Association (AGA) said it believed that April would see similar numbers and that GGR would continue to increase.
AGA senior VP Casey Clark said: “What we’re seeing in there is a lot of pent-up demand for people who want to get out there and enjoy entertainment options like gaming can provide.”
Earlier this year, AGA president Bill Miller predicted that the second half of 2021 could be a banner year for US casinos, saying that “people will be excited to travel, hungry for entertainment, and desperate to get out and have fun again.”
