    The Executive Director of Wynn Macau, Linda Chen, has confirmed today (Dec 2021) that the gaming operator will gradually end its agreements with third-party VIP gaming promoters companies before the end of the year, a decision she considered was “conducive to the long-term and healthy development of Macau”, Chinese-language newspaper Macao Daily reported.
    According to the report, Wynn’s also Chief Operating Officer and Vice-Chairman indicated that mass-market represents Wynn’s main core business, accounting for 75 per cent of its total gaming results this year, with the concessionaire focusing on developing this segment and converting VIP rooms will be converted to different “mass-market uses” and “diversified experience facilities”.

    Amid the latest development of the sector, Wynn Macau – together with Sands China and Melco Resorts — was reported to be planning to close all their VIP rooms run by junkets before the end of this year.

    The effect of the junket crack down is really starting to show.

    Macau’s gaming regulator has issued an instruction to junket operators to stop offering credit to their customers and requesting that chip purchases can only be done for upfront cash. The order from Macau's Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) would effectively bar all junkets from providing loan services to VIP gamblers.
    The notice comes following a Bloomberg report that Wynn Resorts and Melco Resorts would close their junket rooms by December 20 and December 21, respectively. ‘Some (if not all) other casino operators may also follow Wynn’s move with respect to the junket room operations,’ stated a note published by Sanford C. Bernstein.
    Carlos Lobo, a Macau-based gaming consultant, said if the Macau government did make junkets stop offering credit to clients, it would mark the end of an era.

    "If this is true, the junkets will have to operate as a travel agency, through activities such as receiving fees for bringing rich clients to casino operators, rather than receiving commissions from VIP gaming rooms which have been the main business model for years," he stated, as reported by Reuters.

    Macau casino stocks lose almost US$5 billion in sell-off as China’s gambling crackdown snares junket boss
    Macau casino stocks tumbled, erasing US$4.8 billion of market value in Hong Kong, as the arrest of the head of the biggest junket operator in the gambling hub revived concerns about Beijing’s increased scrutiny of the industry.

    Sands China and Galaxy Entertainment, the two gaming stocks on the benchmark Hang Seng Index, dropped more than 5 per cent on Monday, extending a sell-off on Friday that was spurred by the emerge of the Omicron virus strain. MGM China sank 10 per cent. The losses were much wider than the index’s 1 per cent decline.
    “Macau’s go-go years do seem over,” said Steve Vickers, a risk management consultant at Steve Vickers & Associates and a former Hong Kong policeman. “Investors in the casino businesses should manage expectations accordingly.”
    Suncity’s junket revenue will probably drop by 30 to 50 per cent in coming weeks, according to JPMorgan Chase, calling the detention “really bad” for the industry. Suncity accounts for about 45 per cent of the junket market, or 15 per cent of Macau’s total gross gaming revenue in 2019, it said.

    More details on the Macau Studio City expansion

    Zaha Hadid Architects has been remarkably busy lately, unveiling its Budapest proposal and the completed Infinitus Plaza within days of each other. The high-profile British firm has now taken the wraps off yet another project, which is currently under construction in China and consists of two eye-catching towers in a casino resort that are designed to mitigate their carbon footprint with sustainability features.
    The Studio City Phase 2 development is located in the "Hollywood-inspired" Studio City resort in Macau and will expand its facilities. The towers are now reported to have reached their maximum height – marked by a recent topping off ceremony – though as of writing we're awaiting word from ZHA to confirm how tall they actually are. To put them into some kind of context, a similarly sized building nearby reaches a height of 152 m (almost 500 ft).
    Stylistically, the towers are informed by the Art Deco-inspired architecture of the resort and have an elliptical overall form. Their interiors will host two luxury hotels with 900 rooms and suites, plus 21,000 sq m (roughly 226,000 sq ft) of retail and dining space, and 2,300 sq m (24,800 sq ft) of gaming space.
