Macau casinos get open after two-week quarantine

Casinos in Macau

Coronavirus epidemic had a negative impact on the work of gambling operators in Macau.

In addition to serious losses for the casinos and increased control at border posts, the local authorities took a desperate step: they quarantined all casinos in the region.

The reason for this decision was the increased number of infected people in the region (including the employees of local casinos).

At the beginning of February, Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox said that one casino alone loses between $2.4 and $2.6 million per day due to the closure of all gaming establishments in the region.  

The quarantine lasted only 2 weeks, but today the interim ordinance of government was canceled and all casinos in Macau started to work in a normal mode.

This is not the first time that gambling operators make adjustments in their work due to outbreak of coronavirus.

The organizers of Triton Poker Series 2020 postponed the first stage of series, and WPT representatives completely canceled WPT Vietnam and changed the schedule of Asian tour for the same reason.
