Singapore casino revenue may reach 75% of pre-pandemic levels in 2022

A report released by Fitch Ratings has forecast that Singapore’s casino revenue may reach around 75 per cent of 2019 levels in 2022. This year it has recovered to about 50 per cent from pre-pandemic levels.

According to data released by the two Singapore operators, based on the current exchange rate, their total gaming revenue in 2019 was approximately US$3.35bn. Resorts World Sentosa’s gaming revenue for the full year of 2019 was SG$1.62bn (US$1.19bn) while Marina Bay Sands’ revenue was slightly less than US$2.17bn.

Fitch said the living with Covid-19 policy and relaxation of travel restrictions will be key factors in the recovery expectations in Singapore and Malaysia.
