This is not to surprising. Gambling in Macau is comparably new, while Vegas (and Atlantic City) do business for some time now. Put on top the difficult economic situation in the west, and the outcome was to be expected

"according to calvinayre, many Las Vegas casinos generate less than half of their total revenue from gaming these days" - the way i see situation, this is more a plus than a minus. diversification of revenue streams is always a welcome thing, since it makes you more prepared for tsunamis and global warming.

Some of those numbers are amazing-$450 billion is spent gambling and that is not including all the blackmarket stuff.It just shows that if you have a good casino there is a fortune to be made even with all the new regulations.
With these numbers it is understandable why Governments are trying to get a bigger piece of the pie.

Do you guys know why that second biggest casino from Macau in terms of gross gaming yield is called Grand Lisboa? Because, before being independent, Macau was a Portuguese colony, which capital city is Lisboa (Lisbon, in english, although i'm a defender that names shouldn't be translated), and so the name should be like a memory from those times. Apart from this little brain candy, it was known by the common sense that casino industry in Macau is the biggest. Being closer to China and Japan also turns it more attractive and practic to visit to Asian players, and even to Russian players, than Las Vegas.

Either they are thriving because of the asian economic boom/bubble? or China and it's territories have the least shrewdiest gamblers of all time. Don't get me wrong asians know a lot more about math than me, but this revenue does not come from european tourists I think...
