Gaming revenues plummeted in November 2012, down more than 11% from November 2011.
It's never a good idea to try to read too much into one month's data but, nevertheless, there are no silver linings in these clouds. This is a huge decline that had a significant impact on wider numbers.
The gaming win for the September-November 2012 period was down nearly 2% from the same period in 2011. After a promising start, the figure for the 12-month period from December 2011 through November 2012 increased by less than 1% compared to the prior 12 months.
