Paradise Co’s June machine game revenue was down 3.9 percent month-on-month but 65.4 percent higher from a year ago, to KRW4.26 billion.
Paradise Co’s latest casino figures are based on the results of four venues it operates in its casino business division. They are: Walkerhill in Seoul; Jeju Grand on Jeju Island; Busan Casino in the southern port city of Busan; and Paradise City, in Incheon, near the main international airport serving the country’s capital Seoul.
Walkerhill generated KRW61.10 billion in casino revenue for June, making it the largest contributor to Paradise Co’s latest monthly results, according to a separate set of revenue figures the firm lodged on its official website.
No commentary on the reasons for revenue fluctuations is given in the company’s monthly updates.
