As Chinese mainland tourists flocked into Macao during the seven-day Lunar New Year holiday, local casinos reaped some nine billion patacas (1.13 billion U.S. dollars) in table game revenues from February 1 to 21, a local newspaper said Tuesday.

Of the table game revenues in the past 21 days, one third were recorded during the Lunar New Year holiday, lasting from Feb. 13 to 19, the Macao Post Daily reported, quoting unnamed sources.

Total casino revenues for January reached 8.6 billion patacas, according to official figures.

The highest daily table game revenues during the first 21 days of February amounted to at least 900 million patacas, breaking the highest single day record of 800 million patacas last month, the daily said.
