Gambling in the Chinese region of Macau was legalized back in 1850 when this region was under Portuguese rule. Ever since that moment this small island has managed to become the main attraction for gambling in the Asian area and it is now known as the “Monte Carlo of the Orient”. And now thanks to the big growth of the Chinese economy this region has started to attract a large amount of investments and at the same time a lot of tourists that visit the Macau Region from Hong Kong or China. Right now the economy of Macau is mainly powered by tourism and gambling.
The casinos opened in this region are all operating under the law and regulations imposed by the local government. You can find a multitude of casino games, which are available at most casinos 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means that you can find all the classic table games like blackjack, poker, roulette, craps, and baccarat. And on top of that you can of course find some exotic Chinese games.
The Macau Region has managed to grow very rapidly thanks to the fact that the Chinese economy is also growing at a fast peace. This way it was just a matter of time until it managed to grow and overtake the gambling revenues of Las Vegas. And ever since this happened a very great number of casinos that you used to find back in Vegas have moved over to the Macau region to open up new casinos.
