In June, the casino operators in the jurisdiction reported a combined revenue of MOP17.69 billion ($2.20bn). While the figure is an increase of 16.4% year-on-year compared to MOP15.21 billion in the same month in 2024, it marks the lowest growth rate the region has seen in 2024.

Additionally, June's revenue fell short of May's total by 14.1%, dropping to MOP17.69bn from MOP20.19bn. Notably, May's figure was the highest monthly total since the pre-pandemic era. The impressive figures in the month were boosted by the Labour Day Golden Week holiday, which typically led to a significant surge in visitor numbers.

While analysts generally consider June the quietest month for Macau's gaming industry, the record decline was not anticipated. They had projected that revenue would increase by at least 17.5% in the month.

Year-to-date, Macau's cumulative revenue reached MOP113.75 billion, marking a 41.9% increase compared to MOP80.14 billion in the same period in 2023.
