Mass Baccarat Ends Macau's Recovery Year With A Tripling Of Growth

Mass baccarat revenue in Macau roared ahead with 18.6 percent year-on-year growth in the fourth quarter, almost tripling its growth rate over the previous three quarters and falling just short of VIP baccarat’s increment.

After modest 6.5 percent year-on-year growth across the first three quarters, mass baccarat’s improvement in the fourth quarter delighted analysts looking for a stronger mass performance in 2018.

Mass baccarat rose 18.6 percent to 23.45bn patacas ($2.91bn), just behind VIP’s growth of 21.9 percent to 40.637bn patacas ($5.05bn) for the quarter, according to Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) figures released on Tuesday.
