MOCHA OPENS TWO SLOT PARLOURS IN NEW LOCATIONS Macau Business

The government has permitted Mocha Clubs to open two slot machine parlours, replacing others forced to close last month.  The slot machine division of MPEL has permission to open a parlour next to Ponte 16 and another in Centro Commercial Kuong Fat in Rua de Pequim.  Mocha Clubs president Constance Hsu Ching Hui said a third parlour would open once the company had found a suitable hotel to put it in.  They replace parlours closed on November 26 because the law forbids gaming establishments in residential areas.
