With the Macau government limiting table-game growth to 3 percent annually, some of the casino operators planning new properties in the Cotai region have been concerned that there won’t be enough tables to go around. But don’t count Galaxy Entertainment’s Francis Lui in that group.
Galaxy, which is already building phase two of its Cotai property, is planning to add another 500 games to its existing 600. Another two phases are planned, which are projecting another 1,000 games. That seems to be much more than the 3 percent cap, which will only add another 2,000 games total for the SAR by 2023. But Galaxy’s deputy chairman isn’t concerned.
“We said it is the capacity we are able to host,” Lui told Macau Business magazine. “We didn’t say we are going to have all those tables. It very much depends on the government.”
