Atlantic City: Atlantic City casinos won $2.86 billion in 2013, dropping below $3 billion for the first time in 22
years. The win has declined seven straight years since it was $5.2 billion in 2006, the year the first of
Pennsylvania’s 12 casinos opened.
Pennsylvania: Hungry for even more gambling revenue, Pennsylvania is now exploring the legalization of “video
gaming machines” in restaurants and bars. The state is also thought to be one of the leading candidates to next
legalize online wagering.
Online: New Jersey casinos took in $8.4 million from online gambling in the first six weeks of operation. Borgata
led the way with $3.75 million in win and rake, followed by Caesars Entertainment with $2.38 million. It’s considered
a slow start, but not excessively so, and supports the belief that multiple states will have to combine efforts for best
Macau: The gambling win in Macau was $45.2 billion in 2013, an 18.6% increase over 2012. The win far exceeds
all other gambling jurisdictions in the world and is about seven times that of the Las Vegas Strip. However, growth
is expected to decelerate (we’ll see) due to the absence of any new resort openings on the horizon. Visitation to
Hong Kong was a whopping 54.3 million, which also easily outpaced Las Vegas.
Japan: Japan is now considered almost a lock to pass legislation this spring that will allow casino gambling.
Analysts expect four licenses to be up for grabs, with one casino each in Tokyo and Osaka (along with two
“regional” locations). Speculation has Sands, Caesars, MRI, Wynn, and Genting as the favorites (not in order),
meaning one would be left out of what’s being projected as a $10-billion to $15-billion-per-year market, bigger
than any except Macau. Japan’s first casinos would open in time for the 2020 Olympics, which will be held in Tokyo.
Taiwan. Taiwan has also emerged as a likely candidate to legalize gambling this year. If it does, it’s projected that
its first casino would open in 2019.
