Macau’s casinos have recorded their worst monthly revenue performance on record as China continues its anti-corruption drive.

Total casino revenue fell by 23.2% in October from a year earlier, the worst result since the city started recording the data in 2005.

Macau’s gaming authority said total revenue was 28bn Macau patacas ($3.5bn; £2.19bn) for the month.

The city is the world’s largest gaming centre, ahead of Las Vegas in the US.
