CHART(S) DU JOUR: VIP CORRELATION

This note was originally published February 21, 2013 at 14:46 in Gaming

Both were up in Q4 but Singapore VIP volume surged while Macau grew only modestly.  Prior to Q4, the correlation was much higher.

 

  • Singapore 4Q VIP rolling chip (RC) volume soared 50% YoY while in Macau, 4Q VIP volume only gained 5% YoY.
  • Correlation between Singapore RC volume and Macau RC volume prior to Q4 was 0.86
  • Low hold usually drives higher volumes since people keep playing when they win.  Singapore held very low in Q4 while Macau was close to normal.  Singapore's a relatively new market so VIP business should grow faster than that in Macau.
  • Genting today was upbeat regarding VIP volume growth while Macau's VIP volume growth thus far in 2013 has been subdued
  • It remains to be seen if Singapore is taking VIP share from Macau.
