Macau GGR up 492% in May

Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) has reported gross gaming revenue (GGR) of MOP10.45bn ($1.31bn) for May 2021, a 492% increase from the prior-year period.

The total was a 24% month-on-month increase from the MOP8.4bn reported in April 2021, and is the highest monthly GGR figure that DICJ has reported in 2021.

Macau has recorded GGR of MOP42.49bn for the first five months of the year, a 29% year-on-year increase.

May’s rise in revenue coincided with a rise in the number of visitors from mainland China, including a surge during the five-day holiday period at the beginning of the month. 

Visitation during Golden Week increased by 40% from April, while the highest single-day tally since January 2020 was recorded on 1 May 2021, with 45,000 visitors arriving in the 24-hour period.

Macau’s GGR has now increased sequentially over the last three months, having dropped slightly in February.  

Last month several groups announced their commitment to increase vaccination rates among staff, in a bid to support the Macau SAR Government’s call for more residents to get vaccinated. Melco Resorts & Entertainment, MGM China and Galaxy Entertainment Group have all announced initiatives aiming to improve the situation in Macau.
