Casinos and games, who goes up and who goes down in September
Gioconews.it analyzes the trend of Italian Casinos in the past month: revenue growing in Sanremo and Saint Vincent.
Ups and downs in September for the Italian casinos, obviously excluding that of Campione d’Italia, whose closure, from July, the 27th, 2018, literally brought the entire community to its knees without any real prospects for its reopening at the moment. But let’s back to talking about the active ones, it is worth noting the positive trend of two of them, which end the month with an increase in revenue. In third position, and with the negative sign, Venice.
SANREMO – The good time of the Casino of Sanremo continues, waiting for official decisions on hiring or not a new general manager. In fact, revenue in September amounted to €3,616,558, which is a good 4.95 percent more than in the same month last year.
On the other hand, entrances decrease: they dropped by 5.54 percent and they were 14,387.
Slots set above all the positive trend, collecting €3,073,414, 6.17 percent more, but the positive sign is quite generalized. French roulette ends at €155,220, 46.81 percent more, not followed by fair roulette, which instead loses 54.64 percent and stops at €61.309. There is also a decline in poker cash, €84,641 (minus 32.03 percent) and in tournament poker too (€24,304, minus 16.42 percent), while the black jack increases of 22.33 percent (€104,769) and punto banco of 53.11 percent (€108.912). Finally, the sic bo, introduced in August, has collected €3.897 and it is obviously not possible to make the comparison with the past year.
In the first nine months of the year, the Sanremo gaming house collected €34,747,584, a strong 5.26 percent more than in the same period of 2018, but we have a positive result also in the twelve months not coinciding with the calendar year and ended at September: they collected €44.606.970, that is 3.60 percent more.
