Due to customer demand, the Hollywood Casino will be removing 500 slot machines and adding 6 poker tables. Columbus becomes the second casino to reduce its slot machines. Recently Cleveland removed 230 slot machines.
This comes on the heels of lower than expected revenues. The average revenue in December per slot machine was $115 a day at the Columbus casino. This compared to $151 for Scioto Downs, $265 for the Cleveland casino and $175 for the Toledo casino.
