MACAU - A new mahjong centre opened last week at Casino Lisboa. The New Golden Mahjong Centre currently features 20 tables.
“The casinos have now only just recognised mahjong’s potential and are starting to capitalise on it,” Ben Lee, a Macau-based gaming consultant with IGamiX Management and Consulting, told gaming portal GamblingCompliance.
In the second quarter of 2012, mahjong gaming revenue reached MOP57 million (US$7.1 million), up by a staggering 256.3 percent year-on-year, figures released by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau show.
According to GamblingCompliance, Alex Lee Shiu Ming, who has ties to the junket business in Macau, heads the New Golden Mahjong Centre.
