the latest resort in Macau built by Galaxy Entertainment Group,
is lit up in the evening after it opened for business May 15, 2011.
Some of the world's biggest casino operators
are betting that Chinese moms and pops who like to gamble and also
want to shop and dine will turbocharge growth
over the next few years at Macau,the world's biggest gambling destination.
Macau, located on the Southern tip of China
and an hour away by ferry from Hong Kong,
has so far relied heavily on China's young and wealthy for casino revenues,
which totaled about $24 billion in 2010 --well above what Las Vegas earned.
