London Macau Casino Will Open Doors Before CNY 2021
Macau which is home to the biggest and best casinos in the world is getting ready to welcome a new addition to its multi-billion dollar casino resort. The new casino is called the London Macau casino resort and is scheduled to open to the public on Jan 22, 2021.
Sands China which is the Asian subsidiary of Las Vegas Sands Corp. has worked hard to get the London Macau casino open before the popular Chinese New Year (CNY) holiday which starts on Feb 12, 2021. CNY is the biggest holiday in Mainland China and lasts for two full weeks.
Millions of Chinese travel extensively during the CNY break to visit family, loved ones and to also enjoy a much needed holiday. Macau which is located an hour from Guangzhou and Hong Kong continues to be a popular destination for Chinese tourists as it allows them to check out the many casinos in the region.
London Macau Taking Bookings For CNY
Macau’s casinos make a whack during CNY as its sees an influx of Chinese tourists and gamblers who are keen on staying at these casino properties. London Macau was initially scheduled to open in 2021 but that opening date had to be pushed back a couple of times due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Sands China did not want to lose out on the CNY windfall and pushed hard to be ready in time. Las Vegas Sands Corp generates the bulk of its revenues from its Macau operations and invested $2.2 billion into the London Macau project. As the name suggests, this new casino resort is based on the city of London and will definitely be one of the main attractions during the upcoming CNY.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony for London Macau will be held in early Feb. However, London Macau has already started accepting hotel reservations for CNY.
