EVEN-SPREAD TABLE NUMBERS, ASKS FRANCIS LUI Macau Business
According to Galaxy's vice chairman, Francis Lui Yiu Tung, Galaxy has no concerns that the opening of Sands Cotai Central could hurt performance at Galaxy Macau. He says the government cap on live gaming tables is needed but wants an even spread of tables across the city’s six gaming operators so "they can compete on a more equal ground." Mr Lui also confirms that Galaxy will offer three-star accommodation to attract more middle-class mainland visitors and look to expand into new Asian markets.
