Iao Kun Group Holding Co Ltd – an investor in VIP gambling junkets in Macau and more recently Australia – says its rolling chip turnover in Macau for May fell 57 percent year-on-year to US$680 million, from US$1.59 billion in the year-prior period. Its win rate for May 2015 was 1.86 percent, the Nasdaq-listed firm added.
For the first five months of 2015, Iao Kun’s rolling chip turnover was US$3.38 billion – an average of US$680 million per month – down 58 percent year-over-year. During the same period in 2014, it recorded aggregate roll of US$8.08 billion, an average of US$1.62 billion per month.
The firm didn’t give a commentary on the reasons for the deterioration.
The Macau government on Monday announced that city wide in May, gross gaming revenue – another measure of casino industry performance – for Macau VIP play and mass gambling combined, had fallen by 37 percent year-on-year.
Iao Kun’s business partners promote five high roller facilities in Macau casinos.
On May 15 Iao Kun announced completion of a deal allowing the firm to expand its casino junket operations to Crown Perth Casino and to Crown Melbourne Casino, in Australia.
The firm’s chairman Lam Man Pou said in a statement the aim was to “diversify our sources of revenue”.
