Macau gross gaming revenue increased 12.1% in June to 22.49B patacas, according to the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau.
The tally fell short of the consensus estimate for an increase of 18.5%. Strong interest in the World Cup is believed to have cut into casino traffic.
The Macau sector is still posting a very strong year, with YTD gross gaming revenue up 19% to 150.22B patacas.
