A victim of its early success: most metrics down YoY 

Singapore’s gaming metrics continue to decline in Q3 as gross gaming revenues fell to the lowest level since 2Q 2010.  For comparison, Macau hit a new quarterly record in 3Q.  Q3 hold in Singapore was 2.27%, the lowest quarterly hold rate ever and way below Singapore’s historical hold rate of 2.99%.  Hold in 3Q 2011 was 2.90%.  If we use 3% to normalize VIP revenues in 3Q 2012 and 3Q 2011, GGR would have been S$1.77BN, which is down 14% YoY and 3% QoQ. 

3Q gross gaming revenues fell 23% YoY and 9% QoQ to S$1.57 billion.  Not since MBS’s grand opening has revenues been this low.  RWS GGR share rose 1.6% QoQ to 50.8%.
