MacauVIP on the up

Written by Ben Blaschke

There is a mantra in Macau that the health of the city’s gaming industry can be judged by the number of VIP gaming rooms opening or closing at any given time.

Right now it’s clear Macau is picking up momentum with two of its biggest junket operators – Meg-Star International and Tak Chun Group – opening new VIP rooms on the Macau Peninsula in December.

Meg-Star International unveiled its fifth Macau VIP club, Meg-Star Lian Sheng VIP Club, at Wynn Macau, coming eight months after opening its fourth club at Wynn Macau’s sister property Wynn Palace in Cotai. In doing so, Meg-Star revealed its plans for vigorous expansion in Macau in the future where VIP play has enjoyed a remarkable surge in 2017.

Meg-Star Lian Sheng VIP Club is located on the ground floor of Wynn Macau and boasts nine tables across five rooms.

“The company is honored to have successfully entered Wynn Macau,” says CEO Thomas Pang. “The opening of Meg- Star Lian Sheng VIP Club is a brand new milestone for the company’s business development. Our team has always been respectful of customers and weʼre convinced that the new VIP club will continue our spirit to provide memorable and premium service for our customers.”

Just a few days after Meg-Star International’s launch, Tak Chun Group announced that it too was opening a new VIP club, this time at MGM Macau.

Tak Chun had actually shut down its previous VIP club at MGM in 2016, opening a new club at The Parisian Macao instead, but with VIP demand growing the company has quickly added MGM back into its portfolio. The company also told WGM it will be opening two more new VIP clubs in Cotai in early 2018.

Tak Chun’s MGM Macau club is now operational and features 12 gaming tables across six rooms.
