This week’s “By The Numb3rs” compares the change in land-based casino gross gaming revenues (GGR) across five key gaming jurisdictions in Asia-Pacific.

Macau and Singapore, two jurisdictions that are known to rely heavily upon Chinese VIP visitation saw their GGR numbers fall roughly three quarters during the year of the Covid-19 pandemic.

While the same could be said for Cambodia and Malaysia, these jurisdictions saving grace appeared to come from strong local VIP players, which helped to deaden the impact of border closures and international travel restrictions.

The Philippines, however, took the largest brunt of the pandemic, as evident in its near 90 percent fall in GGR in the year from licensed land-based casinos.

With vaccines rolling out this year, analysts are largely upbeat about GGR recovery across Asia’s gaming jurisdictions.
