Gaming revenue in Queensland’s hotels and clubs rose 17.3 percent year-on-year, with the hotel sector continuing to gain market share. 

Total machine gross revenue came in at A$253.2 million, according to analysis from Wohlsen Consulting. The share of the market held by hotels rose to 58.3 percent from 56.8 percent in May, while clubs slipped to 41.7 percent from 43.2 percent. The figures don’t include casino revenue. 

“Some regional areas continue to show strong growth buoyed by solid domestic tourism and local economies,” the consulting firm said. “SEQ markets performed very strongly in June as business in the main business centers was rebooted.”

“Hotels continue to grow market share, with the football season in full swing and high younger-market expenditure.”

There were 40,212 operational machines, with average daily revenue per machine of $210. 

Month-on-month June revenue was down as May benefited from an extra trading day and an additional Sunday compared with June. In May the clubs and hotels generated net revenue of $260.87 million from a total of 40,134 operational machines. That made for an average daily revenue per machine of $210.
