Las Vegas StripDespite predictions two years ago, Singapore did not surpass the Strip as the world’s No. 2 gaming market in 2012.

And it might not happen this year, according to one gaming analyst.

The island nation’s two casinos produced $5.85 billion in gaming revenues in 2012, an 8 percent increase over 2011. That figure fell short of the $6.2 billion produced by the Strip’s more than 40 casinos.
