JO Hambro: Crackdown on corruption hits Macau casinos. The corruption crackdown is affecting some major casinos' ability to turn a profit. Take Macau: VIP and junket-rolling chip value declined 3% year-on-year (y-o-y) and 14% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q). The supposed saviour, mass market gambling, saw revenue growth slowing to 16% y-o-y in the first half of 2014 and further to 13% y-o-y in July 2014, as compared to 32% last year. Table yields (the amount of money a casino makes per table per day) had risen from US$4,600 in the first quarter of 2010 to S$12,900 in the first quarter of 2014, but have since fallen marginally in the second quarter.
