Non-gaming offerings up to the operators: Chan

While the government will push for the development of the non-gaming industry, operators are free to decide exactly what to offer, says DICJ director Paulo Martins Chan, quoted by local media.

Chan, who heads the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) made the comments at the Responsible Gaming Forum – Non-gaming Elements’ Impact on Macau Economic Development in New Normal”, organized by the Macau Responsible Gaming Association on Saturday.

Chan added that while the government would provide general directions regarding the development of non-gaming offerings, gaming operators would be able to choose the offerings and developments should be market-oriented.

Chan also noted that the non-gaming element is a factor taken into consideration when allocating new gaming tables.
