GOVT HAS RECEIVED NO GAMING APPLICATION FOR STUDIO CITY Macau Business

Secretary Tam said the Macau government has still not received any application from MPEL to include gaming elements in the Macau Studio City project.  Tam said that if an application is filed, the DICJ would consider it according to the relevant legislation.  He also stressed again that the 5,500 table limit on live gaming tables will not be lifted before 2013.  He added the remaining number of table licenses should be enough for Sands Cotai Central to operate successfully.

 

The first phase of Sands Cotai Central is set to open in March and will include a 9,850 square-metre casino and VIP gaming areas.  The company expects to open a second casino there by 3Q 2012.
