Macau is a special administrative region of China, and is known as the world’s three major gambling cities along with Las Vegas and Monte Carlo. Macau’s gaming industry is also its pillar industry and has a significant impact on its economy.
As early as 1847, the Macau government enacted a bill to legalize gambling. The current gaming industry can be roughly divided into casinos, lotteries, horse racing and sports betting. In 2018, the revenue of Macau’s gaming industry was approximately 303.8 billion patacas, of which casino revenue accounted for the bulk. Macau’s gaming laws cover physical casino operations, game development, and gaming supervision. The government has specially set up a gaming committee to study the development and management of the gaming industry and formulate related policies. The Gaming Supervision and Coordination Bureau will provide assistance in the formulation and implementation of economic policies.
The Macau government has successively introduced a series of bills related to online gambling, but the corresponding laws and regulations still need to be improved, especially regarding the legality of online gambling. If operators want to open an online casino in Macau, they need to participate in the bidding in accordance with the model of a physical casino and sign a contract with the government. At the same time, the government stipulates that existing physical gaming companies may not open online casinos, which has curbed the development of online casinos from the source. In addition, the Macau government has made clear regulations on the operating methods, specifications, and game types of online casinos, which shows that the government is also paying close attention to the development of the online gaming industry and international market trends.
