Macau: 80% of gaming tables reopen

Macau: 80% of gaming tables reopen

5,400 out of the 6,739 gaming tables in Macau are now open following last month’s 15 day casino shut down.

Macau.- More than 5,400 gaming tables have no re-opened at Macau casinos following the forced 15-day casino closure last month and subsequent grace period given to operators to resume operators.

The number of open tables is around 80% of the 6,739 tables available across all of the city’s casinos.

The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) has asked casinos to restrict the number if available tables to allow for social distancing during the Coronavirus crisis.

Following the grace period, just two casinos still remain closed; the Casino Taipa, at the Regency Art Hotel in Taipa and Casino Macau Jockey Club, also in Taipa.

Casino Taipa reopened after the 15-day closure period but is now closed again because the Regency Art Hotel has been designated as a quarantine venue for visitors arriving in Macau. 

Casino Macau Jockey Club is staying closed because its management wants to undertake renovations.

The casino is licensed as a satellite property under the Macau gaming rights of SJM Holdings Ltd, and was allowed by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau to keep its doors closed despite the regulator mandating that all casinos reopen by the end of this week.
