The world's largest gambling market continued to get larger in November as Macau announced that gambling revenue rose 33% from the same period last year.
The Chinese island posted gaming revenues of 23.05 patacas ($2.88 billion USD). The numbers show a 14% decrease from the month of October, perhaps foreshadowing a slowing of the gambling mecca.
