Revenue last month exceeded $84.7 million, about 2.4 percent less than the casinos took in for May, according to the latest data from the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

They set record revenues in consecutive months in March, $91.6 million, and in April, $92.5 million, before sliding back to $86.8 million in May.
