In Macau, Betting on a Poker Boom

Follow our Travels on Twitter—>>
Also on Facebook–>

Giant Macao

In the casinos of Macao, the only city in China with legalized gambling, the most popular games have long been baccarat, blackjack, and roulette. Matt Savage wants to get Chinese betters focusing on straight flushes and full houses instead. Savage is director of the Asian Poker Tour, which recently completed a 12-day poker tournament for local and Western players at Macao’s StarWorld Hotel & Casino. He says poker is growing rapidly in the former Portuguese colony—albeit with a different atmosphere. “You see a lot more people jumping up and getting very excited, which you don’t see in the U.S. all the time,” says Savage. “It has become more exciting for the players to play here.”

Think of gambling, and Las Vegas comes first to mind. But recession has hurt America’s longtime casino hub: Revenues on the Strip dropped 15% in the first half of the year, following a record-setting 11% drop in 2008. Macao is hurting, too: For the first half of 2009, gaming revenues dropped 12%, to $6.5 billion. But big-name gaming companies like Las Vegas Sands (LVS) and Wynn (WYNN) are counting on Macao for growth. In 2008, the city’s casinos reported revenue of $16 billion, compared with $12 billion for Vegas and $5 billion for Atlantic City.

The Asian Poker Tournament, held this year on Aug. 12-23, is Asia’s biggest, attracting players as well as Internet qualifiers who join online. The majority of the 350 to 450 players in this pokerfest came from Hong Kong, Macao, mainland China, and other parts of Asia—as well as some from Europe and the U.S. According to the organizers, this year’s tournament attracted many more locals compared with a year ago. Eventually, the goal of the Asian Poker Tour is to expand across the region, says Savage. Poker “is really growing globally,” he says. “It’s an exciting time.”
Fast Expansion

What seems to be clear is that poker has a huge potential for growth in Asia. Tom Hall, executive vice-chairman and CEO of AsianLogic, the Hong Kong company that owns and operates the Asian tour, recalls how the expansion started in the Philippines and Korea and is now picking up in mainland China as well. “Three years ago there were no poker rooms in Macao,” says Hall, who points out that there are now 60 tables at three casinos: the Wynn and Lisboa as well as StarWorld.

During the latest 12-day festival of poker, professional players came to Macao from the U.S. for the first time. Among them was Guangzhou, China-born Johnny Chan, who became the first player to win 10 World Series of Poker titles. Another was J.C. Tran, a 32-year-old pro poker player from Sacramento who has already won more than $8 million during his career. According to Chan, the Asia tour is special because he gets to experience a different type of poker culture. “It’s not like a typical tournament in Las Vegas, where you are up against the pros and you know everyone,” says Chan. “These players are playing in a totally different way.”

The tournament wasn’t limited to the pros. Ciaran Carter, 29, is from Sarnia, Ont., and works for the Canadian government but loves poker so much that he spends up to eight hours a day playing online. Carter says the setting and organization of the Macao tournament was impressive. Even so, he adds as he sips some complimentary white wine given out by the organizers, he had expected to see a “bigger number of participants and more of the world’s top players.”

Poker may eventually become a new source of revenue for Macao’s casinos, but a stroll around the city’s main gambling halls during weekdays shows how some of these venues are struggling to keep their tables full and their slot machines humming. American-born Savage notes, however, that the economic crisis “hasn’t affected us nearly as bad as in other areas…. Even though the game has, in the U.S., maybe plateaued, around the globe it keeps expanding.”
Legal Barriers in Much of Asia

Along with Macao, another market with potential is the Philippines, where a new poker room opens almost monthly. The Asian Poker Tour’s first event of 2009 took place there in January with more than 260 participants from over 30 countries. Of the 27 money finishers, 12 were Asian.

The poker industry seems to recognize the potential for further growth, both for land-based as well as online poker operators. But significant entry barriers remain. One of the biggest: Online gaming is illegal in most Asian countries, making it difficult to show poker tournaments on TV to popularize the game. The Philippines, for instance, has become the fastest-growing poker nation in Asia with about 18 poker rooms around the country, thanks in part to TV broadcasts. In the U.S., televised poker “has led to a growth in poker in the casinos and play in the communities,” says Hall.

Language is another stumbling block. But Savage says he’s optimistic players in Asia can transcend the language barrier. “Poker is an international game,” he says. “People learn very early to say raise, bluff, and call.”

The clubs of Ibiza start to become famous worldwide. Although due to neighbors complaints the authorities oblige them to cover the dance-floors, which had traditionally functioned in the open air. Nevertheless Amnesias expansion is unstoppable. From four bars it grows to sixteen, from thirty employees to more than two hundred in mid summer. These include waiters, spectacular go-go dancers’, security, light-jockeys and office workers amongst others.


In 1999 the UN claims Ibiza cultural heritage. The island reaches one hundred thousand habitants and the label Amnesia extends from magazines to records, cloths’etc. Its fame grows like its foam, that foam that names one of its most important performances. Today in the 21st century who hasn’t heard of parties like ‘Cocoon Club’, ‘La Troya Asesina’ or ‘Cream’? Disc-jockeys like Sven Väth, Paul Van Dyk, Dj Tiësto, Danny Tenaglia, Laurent Garnier or Carl Cox are just some of the legendary stars to have passed through the dj booth.

One of the secrets to its success lies in the quality of its sound. Today the discotheque has one of the most advanced sound systems (Expanded Amnesia Technology) due to the dynamic electronic process. Its function is to analyze and submit frequencies that provoke the human body to feel sensations that compare to having a sound massage’ enjoy it!

Amnesia Light Show

From 2006 til date, Amnesia has been awarded for 3 consecutive years the prestigious BEST GLOBAL CLUB award in the Winter Music Conference which is held every year in Miami during the last week of March.


In 2009 Amnesia installed a system of 24 color lasers with the latest technology controllable like a robot. 23 lasers are 1 Watt RGB and there is one high power RGBY Matrix. The combination results in a spectacle unimaginable.


Currently Amnesia is about to begin to open franchises in four key destinations, these franchises must meet strict requirements to guarantee to be as similar as possible to the original club of Ibiza.

Always Beautiful People Partying In Amnesia

There is no doubt that Ibiza is the capital city of fun. Here you will find the very best nightlife and the best clubs and DJs from all over the world. The island bars and discos offer more than just music. They also put on incredible and fun audiovisual spectacles which are advertised in the streets around the port of Ibiza. In consequence, it is not unusual to find celebrities soaking up the atmosphere on the terrace bars and in the discos on the island.

It’s always tempting to try one’s luck at the casino – the intoxicating sound of the jingling slot machines, the flashing lights, and the promise of big winnings to those successful in flirting with Lady Luck.

Sun City, South Africa’s premier holiday resort, offers 2 casino areas open daily.

The Jungle Casino in the Entertainment Center, has over 250 slot machines, while the Sun City Hotel Casino has over 330 slot machines in both smoking and non-smoking venues.

The casino at the Sun City Hotel also offers black jack, American roulette, poker, and punto banco. The Salon Prive has higher stakes, while the International Room is reserved for games with very high limits.

Sun City’s casinos function on a smartcard cashless system and have a Bureau de Change which accepts all major currencies. A passport is required for foreign exchange transactions.

Not too sure where to begin? First-timers needn’t be intimidated. The Sun City School of Gaming provides all the insights into the etiquette and skills of gambling.

Sun City, unique in the context of world resorts, with a combination of features unmatched anywhere, draws thousands of visitors each year to its four top-quality hotels, a Vacation Club plus magnificent sporting and recreational facilities including 2 world class golf courses, and the magical Lost City water-park, The Valley of Waves. Only 187 km from Johannesburg, the resort, situated in the bushveld of South Africa‘s North West province, is surrounded by the imposing mountains of the Pilanesberg. The wide choice of conference venues ensure a level of convention and banqueting facilities which few can beat.

The malaria-free Pilanesberg National Game Park is home to South Africa’s Big 5 – Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Leopard and Buffalo.

Sun City Resort is an environmentally friendly destination and has been awarded Gold classification from the Heritage Programme for its commitment to the principles of sustainable and responsible environmental practice.  In addition to this, Sun City Resort was awarded the 2007 Overall Imvelo Responsible Tourism Award in South Africa.  Imvelo, meaning “nature” in Nguni, forms part of an ongoing hospitality industry campaign to encourage industry members to accept voluntary guidelines by promoting responsible tourism.

The resort is an extended wildlife area where Vervet Monkeys and Chacma Baboons can still roam freely.  They should therefore be acknowledged and treated as wild animals.  Should they be fed, they will lose their natural fear of humans and become aggressive and dangerous.  Guests are requested to assist the resort in following the easy guidelines below:

  • Do not feed or tease the monkeys and baboons.
  • Keep all doors and windows locked when vacating your room.


Sun City Safaris- Madikwe Game Reserve

Sun City- Pilansberg Reserve

Madikwe Game Reserve is only an hour and a half drive from Sun City and is one of South Africa’s largest game reserves. The reserve is fast becomming one of the country’s prime safari destinations.

Madikwe is a region dominated by Kalahari thornveld and is punctuated by rugged hills and seasonally flooded pans.

However, if a guided Africa safari is what you’re after, there are a number of private game lodges that offer guided game drives in the company of knowledgeable rangers.

Madikwe lies outside the Southern African malaria belt, making it an ideal family safari destination.

Since the reserve was proclaimed in 1991, its 75 000 hectares have been restocked with animals indigenous to the area. Species introduced here include all of the Big 5, cheetah, spotted hyena, giraffe, hippo, zebra and a wide variety of antelope and other herbivores.

A Madikwe safari is the perfect add on to a SunCity holiday.

Sun City Safaris – Pilansberg Game Reserve

Visitors can choose to explore the reserve on a self-drive adventure – there are over 200km of excellent roads – or to experience a guided game drive at one of the many luxury lodges within the reserve.

The Pilanesberg Reserve boasts prolific wildlife, including the Big 5, varied habitats and wide open landscapes. Other species likely to be seen here include hippo,zebra, giraffe, crocodile, cheetah, hyena and a variety of antelope.

One of the most memorable to ways to see the wildlife in the Pilanesberg is on a balloon safari over this spectacular landscape.

While many guests at SunCity Africa visit the reserve on a day safari, a few days spent exploring this wilderness is a great add on to a Sun City holiday.

Hotel De Paris Monaco Monte Carlo

Famous for its jet-set lifestyle and magnificent casinos, Monte Carlo is ideal for a high rolling holiday. As for the lodging of choice, none can compare to Hotel De Paris, connected to the Place Du Casino by a mere flight of stairs.

Jupiters Queensland Australia

Situated on a tropical island on Queensland’s Gold Coast, Conrad Jupiters is one of Australia’s largest hotels. But it’s not the massive size that makes this place appealing.

Modeled after its sister property in Las Vegas, The Venetian Macao is just one of the many lavish casino hotels that are giving Macau world-class status as a gambling mecca. This massive place is all about bigger-is-better. Its 3,000 suites each have a minimum of 750 square feet of space, and if you can drag yourself away from your lavish split-level accommodation, take time (and lots of it) to explore the casino.

MGM Grand

Think big, play big, win big — this could easily be the philosophy behind the MGM Grand. Even though Vegas is known for its monster-sized accommodations and casinos, this hotel still manages to stand out. The 30-floor main building alone has 5,044 guest rooms and suites, and the Grand Pool Complex features five swimming pools, a meandering “lazy river” and waterfalls. The property also houses a convention center, the 16,800-seat MGM Grand Garden Arena, an educational lion habitat and an interactive CSI crime-solving experience. But none of this compares to the casino, weighing in at 171,000 square feet. Divided into four separate gaming areas, it boasts every possible way to place a bet and, hopefully, win big
