The opening of Grand Lisboa Palace will give Macau’s gaming regulator 482 gaming tables up for allocation.
Macau.- According to analysts, Macau’s gaming regulator will have approximately 482 gaming tables up for allocation once SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace opens in 2019. The gaming table cap was implemented by the government in 2012.
“Macau pipeline in pictures” – April 2018, the report released by Union Gaming, noted that under the table games cap there are approximately 656 tables available for allocation, AGBrief reported.
“Under the assumption that SJM also gets an initial batch of 100 tables for Grand Lisboa Palace in 2019, and that the government allocates “catch-up” tables to MGM and SJM after the licence situation is finalized, this would leave 482 tables in the government’s Inventory,” said the brokerage.
