macau-75x50A former Portuguese colony, the tiny Chinese city of Macau has won an amazing £28bn in casino earnings mainly from high roller Chinese visitors in 2013 and it has once again proven that it is the biggest gambling market in the world. Macau raked in 33.5bn patacas or £2.55bn in December bringing the revenue for 2013 to 360.8bn patacas up 18.6% from 2012. This is more than seven times the amount from the Las Vegas Strip. Macau’s revenue has overtaken the US market that ranked in $37.3bn a year ago with 12,000 casinos. At that time Macau had 35 casinos and ranked in $38bn.
