CINCINNATI -- Ohio regulators are set to release new revenue figures for the state's four casinos.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission's report on Friday will show revenues for casinos in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Toledo for the month of May.

All four casinos saw significant dips in April revenues compared to March.

The state's newest casino in Cincinnati dropped from $21 million in its first month of operation in March, to about $17.8 million in April. That's about a 15 percent drop.

Cleveland saw an even bigger drop from about $24.5 million in March, to $19.9 million in May - a nearly 19 percent decrease.

Columbus' revenues fell by 13.7 percent to $18 million, while Toledo's dropped by 8.2 percent to $16.4 million.
