VIP table games win as a percentage of turnover (calculated before discounts and commissions) for the quarter was 2.59%, below the expected range of 2.7% to 3.0% and the 2.69% experienced in the first quarter of 2011.

Mass market table games win percentage (calculated before discounts) of 30.3% was higher than our revised range of 26% to 28% and above the 27.9% generated in the 2011 quarter.
