Smaller-scale operators focusing on the Chinese and Thai markets stand to make good margins, but ongoing conflict has scaled back visitation, and the threat of Thailand legalizing gaming could disrupt the status quo. Meanwhile, in Macau, GGR has hit some $1.1 billion in just the first two weeks, with analysts at JP Morgan seeing a heady start to the year.
