Melco Crown boosted by mass market gamblers

Melco Crown (MPEL) delivers a powerful quarter of growth as mass market table revenue rose briskly at City of Dreams.

The company increased revenue the old-fashioned Vegas way by improving table games win rates and gaming machine win rates faster than hotel and food revenue.

Once considered a "pure-play" Macau gaming stock, the company's aggressive pace of expansion to other Asian markets could change that mentality. (PR)
