(Reuters) - Gambling revenue in the Chinese territory of Macau surged almost 18 percent in February, after dropping over the past three years when a prolonged anti-corruption campaign and slowing economic growth hurt business at the world's biggest casino hub.

 

Gambling revenue rose to 23 billion patacas ($2.9 billion) last month, from 19.5 billion patacas a year ago, government data showed on Wednesday, as more visitors came to Macau over the national new year holiday at the start of February.
