For the first nine months this year, Travellers International reported that gross gaming revenues rose circa 12 percent year-on-year while promotional allowance “depleted 4 percent year-on-year”.

Non-gaming core revenues – from hotels, food, beverage and other operating income – rose 29 percent year-on-year to PHP5.0 billion, “following the increase in number of mall goers, hotel occupancy, corporate events and MICE [meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions] activities”.
