Casino revenue at South Korea’s foreigner-only casino operator Paradise Co Ltd rose by 49.5 percent year-on-year in April, according to a Thursday filing by the company to the Korea Exchange.
Such revenue was approximately KRW57.13 billion (US$48.5 million), compared to about KRW38.21 billion in April last year.
Last month’s table revenue increased by 50.8 percent year-on-year to nearly KRW53.53 billion, from KRW35.49 billion a year earlier.
Machine revenue rose by 32.5 percent year-on-year in April this year, to approximately KRW3.61 billion, from KRW2.72 billion in the prior-year period.
No commentary on the reasons for year-on-year revenue fluctuations is given in the company’s monthly updates.
For the first four months of 2019, Paradise Co’s aggregate casino revenue was up 17.2 percent from the prior-year period, to approximately KRW218.53 billion.
Table revenue for the calendar year to April 30 rose by 17.7 percent year-on-year, to nearly KRW203.48 billion. Machine revenue for the opening four months this year was up 11.3 percent, to KRW15.05 billion.
