Macau gross gambling revenue experienced decent growth in the first week of August, but Bernstein analysts expect the pace to moderate in the coming weeks.
According to the brokerage’s channel checks, month-to-date ADR for the first week of August reached MOP 880 million (US$108.9 million), up 20 percent from the similar period in 2017.
