As everyone already knows, China is the country where gambling and online casino is prohibited on the national level. However, there is one exception that few people outside China know about. This is a gambling zone called Macau. Macau used to be a Portuguese territory where the tradition of gambling has developed. This is why the Chinese government decided to establish a gambling zone there. Nowadays, Macau is the only place where all legal Chinese online casinos are located. In addition, Macau also offers lots of entertaining centers for gamblers to have fun and relax.
A special feature of this gambling zone is that it is aimed at the Chinese rather than foreign online casino lovers. This is very beneficial for the Chinese government, because most winnings stay in the country and the government receives a consistent income from all online casinos located in Macau.
Nowadays, the gambling zone of Macau occupies a huge territory with more than 30 recreational centers. Every visitor can find an entertainment for their taste and preferences. Here you will find not only traditional Chinese online casinos, but also slots clubs. Those who love gambling games are offered a standard selection of online casino games and some unique slots that can be found in China only. Those who are indifferent to roulette poker, slots, and other online casino games, are welcome at numerous shopping malls, dancing clubs, and other establishments.
With financial crisis hitting the world economy, the Chinese economy couldn’t stay unaffected. However, the experts engaged in studying the state of the world economy found out that over the 2009-2010 period, the income from Macau gambling zone increased by 57%. This means that the Chinese online casinos continued to contribute to the country’s budget, and those contributions were growing. One can assume the income received by the Chinese government from the gambling business in Macau helped China’ economy to overcome the crisis and stay afloat.
In the times before the recent economic crisis, the United States also received a pretty good income from its famous casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. However, the Chinese online casinos managed to outperform its American counterparts by supporting the economy of its country even during the crisis. This is why the Chinese authorities are continuing to expand Macau gambling zone. Today, the gambling zone is gaining revenue from online casino lovers from both China and foreign countries all over the world.
