In the face of continued declines in revenue from junket promoted VIP players and a new focus on mass gaming, Galaxy Macau on the Cotai Strip has opened a new zone for qualified players. The venue, screened off from the mass gaming floor reportedly cost more than US$3.9 million (HKD30 million) to open and offers three private gaming rooms with 19 tables. Entrance is reserved for invited guests holding Black or Diamond players club cards.

No specific numbers were available indicating the level of spending needed to reach those tiers in the company’s loyalty program known as the GEG Privilege Club. Table limits at Galaxy Macau, just like everywhere else tend to rise and fall based on marketing goals and player demand for tables.

Another high-limit, invitation only area called Horizon Slots was opened today as well with 143 machines.

There are 6 “private salons” in the new Horizon zone and each has a dining table. 128 food items are available from the Horizon VIP menu according to a report on GGRAsia.
