CLEVELAND - February may have three less days than January but the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland didn't need the extra time.
Casino earnings released Thursday by the Ohio Casino Control Commission show the Horseshoe with adjusted gross revenue of $22 million for February up 6.7 percent over January's $20.6 million.
The casino's table game take was up 5.2 percent to just over $8 million. Slots accounted for just over $17 million, a 7.6 percent jump over January.
February may have fewer days but it includes what is traditionally one of the busiest weekends of the year in the casino industry, President's Day weekend.
The Horseshoe helped itself in the month with a special promotion in which they gave away a new car each day.

Ohio's lone slots only casino Scioto Downs also posted an increase in February. The Ohio Lottery Commission reported adjusted gross revenue at the Columbus racetrack of nearly $11 million in February. That's up 8.1 percent over January.
