The Director of the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), Paulo Martins Chan, stated his belief that if Macau wants to diversify its economy and achieve sustainable development, the gaming industry must undergo a period of structural adjustment, according to a statement released by the DICJ.
In achieving economic diversification, Chan suggested that casinos could provide different types of slot machines. Chan believes that, in doing so, revenues from VIP and non-VIP rooms would be closer in value.
Last month, the DICJ met with representatives from GLI and BMM, two companies that sell slot machines. Both GLI and BMM expressed their full support of the Macau government’s aim to increase the gaming sector’s mass market appeal, and confirmed that the slot machines would provide visitors with an entertaining and leisurely experience.
