Live Dealer casino games are going through a blooming expansion.

The exciting new form of gambling has taken the entire stage by storm and is showing no signs of slowing down with more and more online casinos – but land-based ones as well – shifting their focus to this fledgeling gambling form.

Macau casinos Wynn Palace and Parisian Macao are the last in line of Macau land-based offering to be allowed to introduce live dealer tables to their offering.

The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau regulator are said to have given their nod to two properties, run by the local subordinates of the American casino operators Las Vegas Sand Corporation (Sand China Ltd) and Wynn Resorts (Wynn Macau Ltd), to add 25 new-to-market Live Dealer gaming tables as of 1 January 2018.

Both gaming venues – Wynn Palace Cotai and The Venetian Macao submitted applications in time and the authorities issued respective approvals that will push the total number of live dealer tables to nearly 6,500.

Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau had introduced a policy back in 2013 that is intended to limit the growth of live dealer tables to 3% until 2022 and the most recent authorisations are part of this ongoing plan.

The Wynn Palace casino opened in August 2016 with 100 of live dealer tables going operational at launch, whereas the remaining 50 tables had been scheduled to be added in two phases – 25 tables on 1 January 2017 and another 25 a year later.

The same-size live table allocation was granted to the Parisian Macao casino which hit the stage with 100 live dealer tables on its opening back in September 2013. Two equal tranches in January 2017 and January 2018, respectively, were approved for this venue as well.
