The group owns the Austrian casinos operator Trans World Corporation (TWC) and has shares in the Australian group The Star Entertainment.
Gaming revenues amounted to HK$271 million (US$34.9 million) during the period. TWC’s gaming revenue alone saw a 13.1 per cent growth to HK$222.7 million (US$28.7 million).
Meanwhile, FEC’s 4.99 per cent stake in Australia’s Star Entertainment Group, which owns The Star Sydney Casino and other venues in Queensland, was responsible for the remaining HK$48.6 million (US$6.2 million), IAG reported.
