The Chinese island of Macau saw its gambling revenues for the month of June rise by a whopped 21.1% when compared to the same period last year, beating industry expectations while continuing to lead the world in terms of gambling market size.
For the month of June, Macau brought in 28.3 billion patacas, the equivalent of $3.54 billion USD.
Industry analysts expected the results to fall in line with 18-21% growth. The extra 1/10th of one percent may not seem like that great a number, but it does mark yet another month where the gaming mecca has beat industry expectations.
