According to a report from GGRAsia, Wilfred Wong Ying Wai, President and Chief Operating Officer for Sands China Limited, made the revelation to Chinese-language newspaper Macao Daily News while stating that 310 of the new property’s gaming tables would come from some of his firm’s other venues in Macau such as the Sands Macao Casino And Hotel and the Venetian Macao Casino Resort.
The 3,000-room Parisian Macao Casino Resort will also offer 170 shops, a 1,200-seat theater and 56,000 sq ft of meeting space when it opens on Tuesday alongside an outdoor pool deck complete with the Aqua World water park and a half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower.
Wong declared that the $2.7 billion development will have 49 gaming tables specifically set aside for VIP high-rollers brought to the Cotai Strip facility by local junket operators including SunCity Group Limited, Tak Chun Group and Guangdong Group (Macau) Limited while the remainder are to be earmarked for the more moderate mass-market gaming segment. Moreover, he proclaimed that the Parisian Macao Casino Resort is to feature a trio of VIP gaming rooms including a high-roller play facility directly managed by Sands China Limited.
Sands China Limited was earlier granted permission to run 100 new-to-market live-dealer mass-market gaming tables at the Parisian Macao Casino Resort while these are to be joined by 25 further tables in January before an equal number appear during the first months of 2018.
Wong reportedly told the Macao Daily News that the Parisian Macao Casino Resort will employ approximately 6,000 people with 3,700 of these transferred from its other properties in Macau. He went on to state that the new casino resort next door to the Studio City Casino Macau from Melco Crown Entertainment Limited additionally hopes to attract large numbers of middle-class and family customers by offering an “affordable luxury experience”.
Yesterday saw Macau-based Tak Chun Group reveal that it had “suspended” its operation of 15 VIP gaming tables at the MGM Macau Grand Casino Resort, which is operated in the Fisherman’s Wharf district of the former Portuguese enclave by MGM Resorts International subordinate MGM China Holdings Limited, in favor of the Parisian Macao Casino Resort although it declined to divulge the scale or nature of its planned facilities for the new venue.
