A rich July, due to the revenue of Italian casinos, even if the total balance is clearly lower than last year, missing those of Campione d’Italia, closed for over twelve months by now.
The usual Gioconews.it analysis starts from the one with the best trend, Saint Vincent, keeping in mind, however, that all three end July with an increase in their revenue.
SAINT VINCENT – A definitely positive July for the Valle d’Aosta’s gaming house, a trend which is now constant and which is consolidated in the month in which the procedure on the arrangement with creditors was happily concluded (waiting for the approval). In fact, the month at the Saint Vincent Resort & Casino ends with gaming revenue of €5,396,549, 12.89 percent more than in 2018 (€616.180 more in absolute terms) and with entrances (27.281 in total) down compared to the same month of the past year (minus 6.68 percent).
Tables end the month as a whole with plus 19.84 percent (€394.539 more). Black jack (minus 53.99), texas hold’em poker (minus 100 percent, but unlike last year, tournaments were not organized), American roulette (minus 2.85 percent), trente et quarante (minus 13.52 percent) and Poker Saint Vincent (minus 66.41 percent) are among the games with a negative sign.

In the twelve months not coinciding with the calendar year and which ended in July 2019, gaming revenue amounted to €60,599,608, 7.77 percent more: a result that shows the strength of the recovery of the Valle d’Aosta’s gaming house, beyond the variables that can positively or negatively affect the trend of a single month.

The highly positive result is the result of a growing trend in all the games, except for French roulette, which collects €382,259, or 38.03 percent less.

As regards entrances, the sign is negative: in July 2019 there were 51,666, which is 4.89 percent less.

SANREMO – The Casinò di Sanremo is at the third place, whose activity is not blocked by the waiting for the appointment of the new board of directors and by the search for a new general manager, as long as it is decided to assign the appointment for which a research notice has been issued. Revenue stops at €3,591,036, which represents an increase of 1.2 percent compared to the same month last year. On the other hand, there is a slightest drop as regards entrances: there were 15,389, 9 less than last year, therefore an insignificant minus 0.06 percent.

THE BURDEN OF CAMPIONE – A brief mention, just to provide food for thought also to the legislators, on what the closure, on 27 July 2018, of the Casino of the enclave costs to Campione, but also to the Italian area. In the first seven months of the year, the total revenue of Italian casinos has fallen by 27.66 percent, while in the twelve non-coinciding years of the calendar year the drop was of 28.08 percent.
