Rolling chip turnover rebounds at AERL

Unaudited rolling chip turnover at Asia Entertainment & Resources Ltd.’s Macau VIP rooms reached $1.5 billion last month, up 15 percent from a year ago. The gain was boosted by the company’s acquisition in June of the profit stream of a VIP room in the Le Royal Arc Casino but the company said its other rooms also showed improved results. For the year to date, rolling chip turnover totalled $10.04 billion, down 12 percent from last year. The win rate for July was 3 percent, the Nasdaq-listed company said.
