It’s been years in the making, but The Venetian Macao (Yes, they spell it with an “o” not a “u”) opens today on schedule as the 27th casino in Macau. We posted about an early bird special earlier this month, but all 3,000 rooms are booked up for the rest of the month. But can they keep that momentum? We’ll bet that we’ll be privvy to more “Special Deals” in the months to come, but it will definitely be a weekend hotspot for Hong Kongers for the next few months with not only 850 gaming tables and over 4,000 slot machines but entertainment and fancy restaurants as well.
Also in Venetian news, the big tennis match between Roger Federer and Pete Sampras in November has been sold out in about 2 weeks time. Good job bringing in international sports superstars to get more Hong Kong people, and no doubt people from around the region, to come and have a look and spread the word of mouth about the new resort destination.
