Ohio casino revenue numbers are out for the month of May, and month-to-month revenues are up for the state’s four casinos. But with a new racino on the way, there’s growing competition for those gambling dollars in southwest Ohio.

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Ohio Lottery had record sales last year, even as the state faced a sluggish recovery from the worst recession since the Great Depression.

State officials said Monday the lottery pulled in its largest haul ever with $2.6 billion in sales during the budget year that ended June 30. The commission beat the previous year's sales by $108 million.

The boon marks the 10th year in a row that the lottery has seen sales increase.
