Two integrated resorts in Singapore are at the top of Insider Monkey’s rankings of the 12 most profitable casinos worldwide. These two casinos are the Marina Bay Sands and Venetian Macau which form part of the portfolio of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. In 2022, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for over 32% of global market gambling revenue. Aria Resort and Casino and Bellagio, both in Las Vegas, were in third and fourth spots on the list.
Places five to seven on the list
In terms of profitable gaming venues in the U.S., MGM Resorts International was dominant in the rankings. It operates Aria Resort, Bellagio, and MGM National Harbor in Maryland which was in fifth place. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City was sixth on the list. A large portion of the global casino market still lies in the Las Vegas entertainment hub. However, gambling is now legal in many U.S. states and this could change over time. Galaxy Macau owned by Galaxy Entertainment Group was in seventh place on the list.
Eight spot on the list
Parx Casino and Racing in Bensalem, PA, came in eighth on the list. Greenwood Racing Inc. owns and operates this venue. It offers an around-the-clock gambling experience with a vast selection of entertainment options. It also has a PA online casino where players can use the betPARX casino app to bet on their mobile phones. They can play a range of slot games, table games, and place sports bets.
Eighth to twelfth places on the list
Tribal-run casinos were well-represented with two casinos in Connecticut placing ninth and tenth on the list. These were Foxwoods Resort Casino and the Mohegan Sun. Another U.S. venue on the list was Wynn Las Vegas, owned by Wynn Resorts, in the eleventh spot. At all these U.S. casinos, players enjoy playing popular slot games most of all. The Grand Lisboa Palace in Macau, owned by SJM Holdings, came in at 12th place. SJM Holdings is a developer and operator of casinos based in Hong Kong.
Importance of Asia-Pacific region
Top casinos on the list in the Asia-Pacific region show how important it is to casino operators. Hong Kong and Malaysia have some of the best casinos in Asia. The appearance of three casinos in Macau on the Insider Monkey list shows how Macau is consolidating its position as a gambling hub. The Asian gambling market is found mainly around China’s southern coast.
Las Vegas Sands Corporation is one of the biggest gambling companies in the world. It is focusing on growth opportunities and is optimistic about the future investing in the Asia-Pacific region.
