ambling revenue from the city’s casinos may rise 50 % this year, compared with an earlier forecast of 35 percent, Tang wrote in a report today. Casino operators and companies that bring gamblers to the city see no sign of a slowdown, she said.

“Macau will remain strong in the near team,” Tang said in the report. Revenue grew 98 percent in May from a year earlier because junket operators that bring visitors to the island are benefiting from a “sudden increase” in credit, the report said.

Macau surpassed the Las Vegas Strip as the world’s biggest gambling center in 2006. Bettors wagered a record of us$ 15 billion in Macau’s casinos last year, 9.7 % more than in 2008.
