Home » Macau cuts cap on tables and slots

The number of slots and table games permitted in Macau’s casino market, following the award of six new licences in the territory, is being reduced by the government.

From January 1, the limit on the number of slots will be 12,000 and for tables 6,000, a 13 per cent reduction on the table numbers permitted under the previous licences and three per cent in slots.

Of the six successful licence applicants, MGM is ending up with 198 more tables, but all of the other five are seeing a lower cap. SJM (pictured) will lose 743 tables, Melco 196, Wynn 100, GEG 79 and Sands five.

In terms of slots, GEG will gain 402, MGM 349 and Wynn 110 while SJM will lose 768, Sands 335 and Melco 145.
