After launching VIP gambling services for The Plaza Macao and Okada Manila venues earlier in the year, junket operator Tak Chun Group has now reportedly inaugurated a similar venture for the giant MGM Cotai integrated casino resort.
According to a report from GGRAsia, the Macau-based firm has followed rivals Suncity Group and Guangdong Group in bringing a junket operation to the $3.4 billion venue operated by the MGM China Holdings Limited subsidiary of American gaming giant MGM Resorts International and it is planning to hold an official opening ceremony for the new venture on November 19.
Expanding Macau presence:
GGRAsia reported that the move means that Tak Chun Group now runs some 17 VIP junket operations in Macau offering wealthy individuals the chance to enjoy a range of bespoke extras encompassing everything from personalized concierge services and limousine travel to exclusive tickets for events and gambling credits.
Two more junket firms planned:
For its part, MGM China Holdings Limited reportedly explained in August that it hopes to have up to five junket operators offering in-house VIP services at its MGM Cotai venue before the end of March while GGRAsia earlier detailed that the remaining pair are likely to encompass Meg-Star International and David Group.
Additional attractions coming:
Grant Bowie, Chief Executive Officer for MGM China Holdings Limited, reportedly declared that his firm moreover expects to open the high-end Mansion accommodation villas at MGM Cotai for ‘early 2019’ in order to be ready for February’s traditionally busy Chinese New Year period.
As if all of this wasn’t enough, the Hong Kong-listed casino firm’s boss also stated that next month will see MGM Cotai premier a new high-stakes cash facility due to be christened as The President’s Club and aimed at premium-mass players.
