      Revenues were up at all of Ohio's casinos in March, including Toledo's Hollywood Casino.

      Revenues were up at all of Ohio's casinos in March, including Toledo's Hollywood Casino.

      Numbers released Monday show that each of the state's four casinos saw a significant increase in revenue from February. The bump mirrors a similar boost in casino revenues last March following winter slumps.

      This year, the Cincinnati and Cleveland casinos saw the largest jumps. Cincinnati's revenues rose more than 22 percent, from $16.5 million in February to $20.2 million in March. Cleveland's revenues jumped about 21 percent, to $21 million.

      Hollywood Casino Toledo garnered $17.4 million, up nearly 14 percent. The harsh winter didn't seem to be a problem for casino-goers. Despite frigid temperatures and seemingly endless snowfall, the Toledo casino continued to bring in plenty of patrons throughout March.

      The Columbus casino was up nearly 19 percent, to $20.8 million.

      The voter-approved casinos have drawn a combined $206 million this year, with the state collecting about one-third in taxes and distributing the money to Ohio's 88 counties, school districts and host cities, among others.
