And not just “well below 2009 estimates,” but actually about half. Take a bow, Ohio.
Back in 2009, when Dan Gilbert leveraged LeBron James’s popularity to win the most expensive election campaign in Ohio history to legalize a casino monopoly for himself, voters relied on estimates that the casinos would take in approximately $1.9 billion per year in revenue, one-third of which was to go to the state. As it turns out, the proposed budget just issued by the governors’ office projects casino revenues to wind up at $957.7 million by the time July 1 rolls around.
We can only assume that this has less to do with “the economy,” as Horseshoe and State officials apparently want you to believe, and more to do with the fact that Ohioans want increasingly less to do with games like blackjack, craps, and slot machines, that are scientifically proven to be enjoyable only by ignorant people, otherwise hopeless people, and wastrels.
So salute, again, to the great people of This Great State.
