At the same time, 3Q was also negatively impacted by construction disruption as all gaming rooms went offline at some point to be retrofitted for smoking lounges.” Load More Galaxy offers first glimpse of new Galaxy Macau convention center ahead of 2021 launch JW Marriott at Galaxy Macau named venue and Galaxy Entertainment Group named Venue Sponsor for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner 300-seat cap revealed for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Gala Dinner at Galaxy Macau Galaxy Entertainment Group saw its net revenue grow 6% year-on-year to HK$13.0 billion and Adjusted EBITDA 10% to HK$3.9 billion in 3Q18, the increases coming despite bad luck across all three of its Macau properties and the mid-September closure of casino operations for more than 30 hours during Typhoon Mangkhut.Galaxy’s results weren’t as strong as the previous quarter, with revenue and EBITDA down 7.0% and 10.0% respectively from 2Q18.
