COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Revenues at each of Ohio's four casinos declined in December, leading to the worst statewide showing in the nine months that all four were open.

Figures released Tuesday by the Ohio Casino Control Commission show casino revenue statewide declined 9.8 percent. The casinos are in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo.

The Cincinnati casino opened March 4, and the others opened in 2012. The statewide December revenue of $63.2 million was the lowest full-month total with all four facilities open.

For December, revenues were off 19.1 percent in Cincinnati, 9.6 percent in Cleveland, 5.8 percent in Columbus and 3.9 percent in Toledo.

Gambling options in Ohio expanded in December with two new horse racing tracks with slots-style video lottery terminals. Those new racinos opened north of Cincinnati and near Cleveland.
