Revenues Down Over 10 Percent at W. Virginia Casinos in July Compared to Last Year
"We still have some casinos that have not opened up in Ohio at this point," said Myers. "We don't know what the effect of that will be."
Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races brought in the most revenue of any West Virginia casinos in July, with $13.86 million in gross receipts and Wheeling Island had the lowest revenue of all West Virginia casinos bringing in just under $1 million.
Overall, West Virginia's four racetrack casinos brought in $60.84 million from video lottery machines and $6.53 million from table games.
Revenues were down over 10 percent at West Virgina racetrack casinos for the month of July when compared to July of last year. State Lottery officials had originally predicted an even worse
drop due to competition for neighboring Ohio casinos.
According to Lottery assistant director John Myers, it is still too early to tell if this is as large of a drop as West Virginia casinos will see.
