The latest casino revenue numbers are out and they don't paint a good picture for Cincinnati's Horseshoe Casino.

Cincinnati's revenues dropped from about $19.6 million in May to $17.6 million in June, according to the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

All four of the state's casinos are reporting lower numbers for June. However, the roughly 10 percent drop for Horseshoe Cincinnati is the largest.

Combined the four venues generated $68.6 million in June. That's down from a high of $84.3 million in March.
