The Chinese enclave’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau reported that casino gaming revenues reached MOP24.9bn ($3.1bn) last month, compared with MOP20bn a year earlier.

So far this year, Macau’s casinos have generated revenues of MOP74.3bn – 27 per cent higher than at the same stage in 2011.

It is believed the rise in revenue is due to an increase in the number of Chinese tourists visiting the enclave.
