While half of Macau’s gaming operators are waiting to make their move onto the Cotai Strip, Sands China Ltd is tomorrow opening its third property there. Sands China president and chief executive Edward Tracy says the new property underlines the company’s commitment to mass-market hospitality and gaming, Macau Business reports in its April issue. Once complete, Cotai Central will house two themed casinos called Himalaya and Pacifica. Himalaya opens in phase one and has about 600 slots, 216 gaming tables and four live electronic gaming tables connected to 200 terminals for players. Another 150 VIP tables can be found at the Paiza, Cotai Central’s dedicated area for VIP premium and junket players. The Paiza will host 11 fixed junkets. The gaming operator will get 200 new tables from the government for the first phase. That will use up all the available tables under the cap of 5,500 imposed until next year. The property’s other tables will be sourced from Sands’ established casinos. It could be far more difficult finding tables for Pacifica when it opens in the third quarter. “Our understanding is that we have another 200 new tables that we were essentially promised [by the government],” Mr Sisk says. Cotai Central’s first phase features more than 600 five-star rooms and suites under the Conrad hotel brand and another 1,200 four-star rooms from Holiday Inn. The opening will add another 28 shops, meeting space and food and beverage options to Cotai. Read the full version of this report in April issue of Macau Business.
