Macau GGR growth to accelerate in March: analysts GGRAsia · March 2, 2018 at 7:58 am Several analysts forecast the rate of year-on-year growth for Macau’s March casino gross gaming revenue (GGR) will accelerate compared to February, when it expanded at a modest 5.7 percent year-on-year. February’s tally was MOP24.30 billion (US$3.01 billion), according to figures from the local regulator, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, issued on Thursday. In a note the same day, brokerage Deutsche Bank Securities Inc estimated March GGR market-wide would be up 17 percent year-on-year. “If we were to assume a 6 percent sequential decline from the January and February aggregate win per day, for the 31 days in March, it would imply growth of approximately 17.3 percent year-on-year for the month” wrote analysts Carlo Santarelli and Danny Valoy in the Thursday note. They have also raised their forecast for Macau’s GGR growth for the first quarter and the whole year of 2018 to 18.8 percent and 12 percent respectively.
