MGM Grand Macau Opens

Next big casino is now open for business.


If you’ve passed through the Cross-Harbour Tunnel in the last few weeks you know that the MGM Grand Macau is opening and it did so last night:

MGM Grand Macau, half-owned by MGM Mirage and half by Pansy Ho, daughter of the original Macau casino mogul Stanley Ho, joins its rivals in trying to attract the seemingly endless hordes of Chinese gamblers from across the border.

Built on prime waterfront, the 1.25 billion-dollar casino resort features 600 rooms and a casino with around 385 table games, 890 slot machines and 16 private gaming salons.

It is not on the same scale as the gargantuan Venetian, which opened in August targeting the mass market and boasting 870 gaming tables and 3,400 slot machines on floors as big as three football pitches.

Another stop if you are visiting Macau over the holidays. Check out their site here with room rates and things to do.
