Gross casino revenues in Macau returned to two digit growth in November, of +22,6% to 23.033 billion patacas (US$2.879 billion), according to figures released by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ).
November was the 16th consecutive month of increases in gross revenue, after a series of 26 months of decreases starting in June 2014, which was only reversed in August 2016, when modest growth of 1.1% to 18.836 billion patacas (US$2.354 billion) was recorded.
Accumulated gross revenues between January and November amounted to 243.043 billion patacas (US$30.380 billion), and the percentage variation – of over 19.5% – was the highest since the beginning of the year.
At the end of the first quarter of 2017 there were 40 casinos in Macau, 22 of which were owned by Sociedade de Jogos de Macau, six by Galaxy Casino, five by Venetian Macau, four by Melco/PBL Jogos (Macau), two by Wynn Resorts and one by MGM Grand Paradise, with a total of 6,449 tables and 16,310 slot machines.
