Macau GGR reached MOP$14.72 billion (US$1.82 billion), which was a 450% increase from April 2022
The gaming industry in Macau has experienced a strong recovery following the easing of COVID-19 border restrictions. In April 2023, gross gaming revenue reached MOP$14.72 billion (US$1.82 billion), which was a 450% increase from April 2022, when Macau’s GGR was MOP$2.68 billion (US$332 million). This result was also 15.6% higher than the March 2023 GGR total of MOP$12.74 billion (US$1.58 billion), which had been the highest monthly GGR tally since January 2020. For the first four months of 2023 combined, Macau’s GGR is up 141% year-on-year to MOP$49.36 billion (US$6.12 billion). The change in fortunes for Macau’s casinos comes after the government announced the removal of almost all COVID-19 border restrictions, leading to an increase in visitation. The Macau government announced that visitor arrivals had reached a post-COVID record of 133,911 on Sunday 30 April.
