MACAU TURNS IN A STRONG PERFORMANCE FOR OCTOBER 2012

Revenues of $3.5 billion generated by gambling island
Casinos on the island of Macau off the Chinese coast generated the strongest revenues so far this year in October, up 3.2% to 27.7 billion patacas ($3.5 billion), according to numbers from the Macau Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau released Thursday.
The percentage rise was 1.5% higher than analysts had predicted for the month.
The Reuters news agency comments that lower economic growth in China and heightened political scrutiny as the country prepares for a generational power shift have been keeping many cash-rich Chinese gamblers away from Macau's high roller baccarat tables, with growth rates falling substantially over the past six months.
Bloomberg business news noted that promotions over the eight-day Golden Week holiday attracted more Chinese tourists to the world's biggest gambling hub, with October revenues overtaking the record 26.85 billion patacas achieved in the same month in 2011.
