Casinos and games, who goes up and who goes down in january 2019
Gioconews.it analyzes casino trends in the first month of the year: a positive sign both in Sanremo and in Saint Vincent.
A year in three. Or at least, it started with only three Italian gaming houses in business, hoping that the dramatic situation the Casino di Campione is experiencing will be solved as soon as possible, and with it the entire local community, following the closure of the casino, last July, the 27th, that is to say since the court of Como ruled the bankruptcy of its management company.
The usual analysis of data by Gioconews.it starts, as usual, from the casino with the best performance last month.
SANREMO – Liguria is at the first place, even if by a nose from the Valle d’Aosta competitors. In January, the Casino di Sanremo collected €3,843,923, which represents a growth of 4.47 percent compared to the same month last year, and a good omen to start the year with a turnaround, compared to a 2018 which was lower than expected, as regards revenue. Slots contribute to the final result, collecting €3,026,825, or 6.73 percent more on an annual basis.
However, positive signs can also be recorded as regards the entries relating to several tables: French roulette, for example, with its €419.905, grows by 20.6 percent, while fair roulette collects €159.644, 110.1 percent more. Good also black jack, with €148.170, 16.55 percent more, while poker falls (tournament of 25.1 percent, for €16.386; cash of 51.2 percent, for €66.593) and punto banco the same: €18.398 in total, 88.48 percent less. In the twelve months from February 2018 to January 2019, the Sanremo gaming house collected €43,101,286, which is 6.54 percent less than the previous twelve months not coincident with the calendar year.
SAINT VINCENT – The Saint Vincent Resort & Casino is ending the extremely difficult agreement on the reduction of labor cost and ends a positive month, as regards revenue.
In fact, January ends with a gaming collection of €5,082,375, 4.45 percent more than in 2018 (plus €216.391) and with entries down on the same month of last year (minus 3.65 percent) .

VENICE – After a sparkling 2018, the year begins with a setback, for the revenue of the Casino di Venezia, which is therefore at the third place and is the only one to end the month with the minus sign.
In January 2019, the Casino di Venezia collected €8,237,616, or 7.24 percent less than in the same month of the previous year. Also entrances slow down: 64.603, 3.67 percent less.

However, French roulette ends with a loss of €268,509: it really can be said that the players have cleaned out!
Finally, we must report the decline of chemin de fer: collection of €706,397, 2.79 percent less, and that of blackjack: €382,807, 20.32 percent less.
