Border relief for Macau casinos

Home » Border relief for Macau casinos

More good news for the beleaguered Macau casinos comes from the territory’s government’s decision to reopen its borders to tourists from 41 countries.

It came as the gambling enclave on China’s mainland reported a second consecutive poor month for gaming revenue, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Macau’s 41 casinos recorded $271m in revenues in August, a 50.7 per cent drop from August 2021 when the total was $549.3m. It was the second-lowest month of the year, coming directly from border closures designed to hamper the spread of the Covid-19 infection.

Macau only reopened on July 22 after a 12-day lockdown, but it is now in a multi-phased reopening across the territory.
