Casino sales at Grand Korea Leisure Co Ltd (GKL), an operator in South Korea of foreigner-only casinos, rose by 30.2 percent year-on-year in March, to just under KRW38.70 billion (US$29.4 million), the firm said in a Monday filing to the Korea Exchange. The latest monthly tally was up 5.2 percent month-on-month.
In the latest reporting month, table-game sales were just above KRW35.77 billion, up 28.1 percent from the prior-year period, and a 4.3-percent increase sequentially. Machine-game sales were just over KRW2.92 billion, up 62.0 percent from a year ago, and 18.8-percent higher month-on-month.
The firm gave no commentary on the reasons for either change.
The company runs three foreigner-only Seven Luck-branded casinos: two in the capital Seoul, including in Gangnam, and one in the southeastern port city of Busan (pictured). The company is a subsidiary of the Korea Tourism Organization, which in turn is affiliated to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Table-game sales were just above KRW99.15 billion in the three months to March 31, up 138.6 percent year-on-year; while machine-game sales rose by 77.2 percent, to just under KRW8.40 billion.
