The first capital of casinos

Welcome to Macau!

Macau is a self-contained area inside the China. It is located on the coast of the South China Sea, at the mouth of the Pearl River Pearl. It occupies an area of 28.6 km2. 

The green light on the gambling business Macau received 18 years earlier than Monaco and 84 years ahead of Las Vegas. The official date of birth of the casino capital can be regarded as 1847, although it had begun much earlier, when in 1557 the Portuguese by bribing Chinese officials have taken Macao for rent for 442 years (a deal similar to the sale of Native American land to colonizers). It was the Portuguese who decided to open casinos here.

The reputation of Macao as the place of the famous casinos, brothels and clans triads selling opium was born in the 18th century. And it lasted until the 60s of the 20th century, while a powerful businessman Stanley Ho became interested in the region. He won the tender for gambling monopoly in the region. For 35 years, Stanley Ho was the sole owner of the Macau gaming business. By 1972, in addition to many bookmakers Ho had eight casinos and luxury hotel «Lisboa» (Lisbon), which is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. In 2002, the Chinese government invited foreign investors in Macao by giving only three licenses for gambling. Currently, due to sub-license, the number of operators has increased to 6.
