Macau has recorded a gross gaming revenue (GGR) of MOP$6.54bn ($817.3m) for June 2021, an 813% rise from the MOP$716m recorded in June 2020.
June’s figure is, however, a 37% month-on-month decline from May 2021, where GGR was MOP$10.45bn. The figures were released by Macau’s Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau.
While June 2020 was the lowest point since the pandemic began, May 2021 was the highest point, with the figures coinciding with a five-day holiday period in mainland China at the beginning of the month.
The sequential decline has been linked to an outbreak of Covid-19 in Guangdong Province at the end of May, with border restrictions becoming more strict between Macau and mainland China, while mandatory quarantine measures were introduced on passengers arriving from parts of Foshan, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
