The NEW Gambling Capital of the World?

Recently the MGM Grand Macao saw a rich reward from opening their doors on the island of Macau. Opening on December 18th, they found that by December 10th they had generated more than 6.6 million USD. Not a bad start for any casino online or brick and mortar. They are just topping off the already incredible revenue being generated by the gambling destination in Asia. For 2007 they are anticipated to surpass last years revenue generation with a record 10 billion USD, by the 31st of December. What an impressive statement.

You may wonder why it is impressive…

The current capitol of the gambling and gaming world, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA typically generates just more than 8 billion USD, annually. They were surpassed by total gaming revenue now 2 years in a row.  Where will this leave the gaming capital that has held that position for so many years running? Only time will tell if they can design an incentive program or series of programs that will maximize their popularity, and improve on their status, before Macau takes over the title.
