COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Revenue figures show profits at Ohio's four casinos took a dip in April.

The numbers released Wednesday show April revenues for each casino were down from March and compared with the same month last year.

Cincinnati's April revenues had the steepest drop, falling by 17 percent from March to $16.7 million in April.

The casino in Columbus saw a 16 percent drop from March, to $17.4 million last month. The Cleveland casino's revenue dropped by 11.5 percent, to $18.8 million.

Toledo's casino had the smallest decrease in April revenues from the previous month, dipping to $16.1 million. That's a 7.5 percent decrease.

Each casino's April revenues were down between 2 and 6 percent from last April's numbers.

All four casinos had seen big revenue jumps in March following winter slumps.
