Macau Sees Revenue Boost Thanks To Lunar New Year

This story was published more than 10 years ago.

Gaming revenues in the world's largest betting market saw a nice rebound in the month of February thanks to the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday.

Macau saw more than one million punters visit their island gaming destination for the week long Lunar New Year Holiday. The large boost in customers helped gaming revenues soar by 11.5% over the same period in 2012, totaling 27.1 billion Patacas.

The increase comes after revenues for the month of January were less than expected by industry analysts. It is expected that the gaming revenues for the month of March will be affected by neighboring China' political changes and the possibility of less High Rollers visiting due to financial restrictions in their home countries.
