Macau Has Another Breakthrough Month

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

The world's largest gambling market got larger again in April as Macau saw a 21.9% rise in revenues, reaching 25 billion patacas ($3.13 billion).

The former Portuguese colony has continued its strong run of bringing in record revenues, even though financial analysts say that the momentum is unlikely to continue.

Macau's revenues were likely aided by the opening of a new casino owned by Sands China magnate Sheldon Adelson.
