Year-on-year revenue comparisons in Macau have been extraordinarily high throughout 2023, as the special administrative region recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic. For August, revenue was up by 685.4% yearly.
While this was one of the higher year-on-year increases during the year, it was decidedly lower than the 4,082.9% rise seen in July.
Revenue in Macau now stands at MOP114.01bn cumulatively for the first eight months of the year, up by 295.1% yearly.
Success all-round in August
The month saw Macau-based casinos post positive second quarter results. Melco reported a 220.0% revenue rise for Q2, while Wynn Resorts posted an increase of both revenue and profit for the period.
Meanwhile, at Galaxy, revenue shot up 257.0% year-on-year. SJM Holdings continued this trend by posting its first six-month stretch of positive earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) since 2019.
Melco, Wynn Resorts, Galaxy and SJM were four of the six operators to receive concessions from the Macau government late last year.
