In a conference call Thursday that saw candid Steve Wynn call his ongoing feud with Boston Mayor Martin Walsh a perverse comedy, the chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts also criticized the Macau government’s table allocation policy. “The table cap is the most intuitive and irrational decision ever made,” Wynn said, “outrageous and ridiculous.”
Mr. Wynn criticized the way table allocations were being handled, saying he was spending billions to include out-of-game amenities in the upcoming “Win Diamond” (Win Palace Stage 2). “You never run your business this way,” Mr. Wynn said. “Here we are spending billions of dollars building an out-of-game facility, and someone arbitrarily said, ‘Well, you should only have this many tables. No jurisdiction has ever forced that kind of logic on us,” he lamented. Mr. Wynn also mentioned the multibillion-dollar Studio City, which is set to open in just a few days, which has not officially announced how many tables will be allocated.
The Macau government has limited the annual growth rate of the number of tables to 3% for 10 years since 2012. Local media did not name Win specifically, but reported that the government told an extraordinary meeting called Sunday that policies in already defined areas, including gaming and labor, were firm under the law and would never be lightly changed. The Cabinet of the Minister of Economy and Finance said it regretted the opinion in this regard. 카지노사이트 순위
