The index’s publisher, the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM), said nonetheless that year-on-year in October, the index was down 21.5 percent.

During the month, nine of the 12 AGEM Index companies reported stock price increases.
The largest positive contributor to the October data was slot machine maker Aristocrat Leisure Ltd, responsible for a 35.62-point gain to the index due to a 12.6-percent month-on-month increase in its stock price.

The largest negative factor was linked to Konami Corp, with a 2.3-percent decrease in its stock price resulting in a 5.20-point loss for the AGEM Index.
