Macao’s gross gaming revenue (GGR) fell 94.5 per cent year-on-year to MOP 1.344 billion (US$168 million) in July, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) said today.
However, GGR was up 87.7 per cent month-on-month.
In the first seven months of the year, GGR declined 79.8 per cent year-on-year to MOP 35.0 billion.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, foreign nationals continue to be barred from entering Macao. While mainland Chinese, Taiwan and Hongkongers are allowed to enter Macao, they are subject to a range of novel coronavirus screening measures including a 14-day quarantine for some of them.
Casino admission is subject to a health code that includes a nucleic acid test (NAT) certification.
