The Asian casino market is the biggest in the world, with Macau constantly outperforming Las Vegas in monthly gross gaming revenue (GGR) – which has once again become the case since the zero-Covid policy imposed on China by the Government was lifted in January 2023.

Meanwhile, Singapore’s VIP market provides the destination of luxury that many high rollers want when gambling substantial sums, while Mohegan has recently opened the Inspire Resort in South Korea.

Below, Gambling Insider takes a look at the figures from 2023, to see which venues across the Asian continent proved to be the 5 largest in the world’s foremost gambling market. These statistics will be updated once key and up-to-date data has been released by all operators.

Casino Revenue (bn) (YTD 2023) Operator
5. The Londoner Macau $1.79bn Las Vegas Sands
4. Wynn Palace Macau $1.88bn Wynn Resorts
3. Venetian Macau $2.68bn Las Vegas Sands
2. Galaxy Macau $3.54bn Galaxy Entertainment Group
1. Marina Bay Sands $3.85bn Las Vegas Sands

*Revenue can vary from net to operating, depending on different reporting by different operators. The headline revenue total presented is the figure used.

Other notable properties include:

Wynn Macau

Owner: Wynn Resorts

Wynn Macau is one of two casino resorts in the Chinese gambling capital, both of which are major players in the city and the destination for millions of gamblers in China and abroad.

MGM Macau

Owner: MGM Resorts International

MGM’s most well-known Chinese property is the third largest in all of Asia, making more than enough revenue to justify MGM’s decision to have both its venues in the Chinese gambling province.

Resorts World Sentosa

Owner: Genting

Singapore’s second casino resort is located on the beautiful Sentosa Island, where the man-made beaches make the player feel as though they are in paradise. Though it isn’t as large as Marina Bay Sands, Resorts World still has the air of luxury associated with Singapore.

MGM Cotai

Owner: MGM Resorts International

The largest of MGM’s two casinos in Macau.

The Londoner Macau

Revenue: $1.79bn

Owner: Las Vegas Sands

The first of Las Vegas Sands’ casinos to feature in this list, with two more to come. The Londoner represents a smaller destination than The Venetian or Marina Bay Sands.

Wynn Palace Macau

Revenue: $1.88bn

Owner: Wynn Resorts

The biggest of Wynn’s properties in Macau, it places fourth in Macau’s own rankings and, combined with its sister hotel, makes Wynn one of Macau’s largest operators.

Venetian Macau

Revenue: $2.68bn

Owner: Las Vegas Sands

The biggest property that Las Vegas Sands has in Macau takes the second spot in the region and second overall in Asia – impressive considering that Las Vegas Sands no longer has any resorts left in the historic US gambling hub.

Galaxy Macau

Revenue: $3.54bn

Owner: Galaxy Entertainment Group

Officially the third-biggest casino in Asia – and the second-biggest overall in Macau – Galaxy Macau has fallen a place since the Q1 results came out, having been overtaken by The Venetian. 

Marina Bay Sands

Revenue: $3.85bn

Owner: Las Vegas Sands

The gem in the Asian crown lies in Singapore, complete with a home that is famous around the world and dominates the Singapore skyline. Marina Bay Sands is a shining behemoth that attracts millions of people every year to its halls, easily beating out casino competition from Macau to sit alone atop the throne of Asian casinos.
