The latest revenue numbers for Ohio's four casinos are expected to show whether the facilities' summer slump continued in July.

The revenue totals for last month will be released Wednesday by the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

The Horseshoe Cincinnati was down the most in June at 10 percent and was hurt by lower revenue from both slot machines and table games. The casinos in Columbus, Toledo and Cleveland also saw their revenues dip.

Casino revenues statewide in June were $68.6 million, the lowest total in the four full months with all four Ohio casinos open. The statewide total dropped nearly 5 percent from May to June.

The voter-approved casinos began opening last year under a plan meant to create jobs and spur development.
