Daily Asia Gaming eBrief: Macau operators on non-gaming balance beam

Good Morning. Non-gaming is the name of the game, with Macau in particular aiming to refocus itself to concentrate on a younger demographic less keen on the tables. Experts note, however, that GGR is still a major driver for the necessary investment involved in non-casino experiences. Meanwhile, Singapore moves to further limit access to casinos, imposing a ban on those receiving criminal legal aid. And back to Macau, GGR for FY24 is expected to rise by a third compared to last year, according to analysts.
