This story was published more than 11 years ago.

The world's largest gambling destination Macau has once again reported growth in gaming revenues, as the island reported that more than 28.3 billion patacas ($3.54 billion) was brought in from punters in April.

The number is a 13.2% increase over the same period last year, and keeps in line with the roughly 14% increase that the island saw during the first three months of 2013.

Currently Macau generates about six times the amount of revenue of the second largest market, Las Vegas. In 2012 gaming revenues for the popular spot of the Chinese coast reached $38 billion.
