ministry’s website.)

Annual casino entry passes sold and levies collected 
Questions Mr Png Eng Huat Hougang SMC 
To ask the Acting Minister for Social and Family Development
from 2010 to October 2012 
(a) what is the number of annual casino entry passes sold per
year by each of the two casinos; and 
(b) what is the amount of casino entry levies collected by each
casino per year. 
Written Answer Casino entry levies collected in 2010 and 2011
were about $216 million and $195 million respectively. About
$134 million has been collected from January to September 2012.
However, data on the number of annual casino entry levies
collected by each casino operator and the amount of casino entry
levies collected by each casino operator is commercially
sensitive. 
All casino entry levies are paid to the Singapore Totalisator
Board and are used for public, social and charitable purposes.
