The 285 Baccarat tables scattered over the Las Vegas Strip contribute a surprising proportion of the strip’s total revenue. Baccarat is played on only 11% of the tables, but contributes 47% of the table game revenue across the strip casinos. Twenty-one, in contrast, is played on almost 1350 tables and contributes just 25%. The two charts on the slide below put Baccarat’s revenue in context, relating it to other table games and to the total strip revenue, including gambling, rooms and those great buffets.
I used two 100% stacked bar charts to tell the Baccarat story. The left chart shows how Baccarat revenue is out of proportion to the real estate devoted to the game. The revenue per table data column helps drive home the point. The right chart compares Baccarat revenue to other strip revenue sources. I use an exploding segments (gaming in the first bar and table games in the second) to drill down from total casino revenue through gaming revenue to table games revenue. In both charts, I used the same colors for all table games and highlighted Baccarat in red to draw attention to it. Here is the chart in SlideShare to download and edit using Mekko Graphics:
