COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The summer vacation season began badly for Ohio's four casinos.

All four casinos saw their revenues drop in June, with revenues at the Horseshoe Cincinnati down the most at 10 percent. The Cincinnati casino was hurt by lower revenue from both slot machines and table games.

Revenues were off more than 3 percent at both the Cleveland and Toledo casinos and down 1.5 percent at Hollywood Columbus.

Casino revenues statewide in June were $68.6 million. That was the least in the four full months with all four Ohio casinos open and was down nearly 5 percent from May.

The casinos began opening last year under a voter-approved plan meant to create jobs and spur development. Cincinnati's casino, the newest, opened in February.
