Gross gaming revenue (GGR) in Macau rose 8% in November on a year-over-year basis. Despite a tough hold comp, VIP hold appeared slightly below normal for this year but well below 2011 numbers. Mass revenue led the way, up 33%, while VIP revenue declined slightly for the second consecutive month. How did the Macau players fare?
