On the 2nd of January, official data showed that Macau saw gambling revenue increase approximately 14 percent to about $38 billion in 2012. The figures also indicated that Macau casino revenue jumped as much as 20 percent in December, surprisingly topping analysts’ estimates. The results support the Macau’s title of the world’s biggest gambling market.
Gambling revenue in Macau, one of world’s gambling capitals, did grow approximately 12.3 percent in September, however the increase did not meet analysts’ estimates. The growth suggests that an economic slowdown in China also is affecting wealthy mainland’s gamblers. However the gambling revenue in Macau improved compared with the gambling revenue from August, yet the growth is not as aggressive as it was in previous years.
