Concerns raised about Macau gambling ban for casino staff

By site_editor

Casino & Gaming SmartBrief carry an in-depth article (June 19 2018) that states that two Macau gaming labour groups have expressed concerns about the likely effectiveness of a proposed bill to ban the staff of the city’s casinos from all local gaming floors outside work hours so as to curb problem gambling among them.

The labour groups concerned are Power of the Macao Gaming Association and Professional for Gaming of New Macau. The latest version of the bill – which amounts to an amendment of existing law – was announced last Friday by the city’s Executive Council, and will be sent to the Legislative Assembly to be voted upon.

The Macau government proposes that any designated casino worker detected on a local casino’s gaming floor outside working hours would be liable to a fine of between MOP1,000 (US$125) and MOP10,000. Some staff not directly involved with gaming operations – including cage staff, food and beverage outlet workers, cleaners and those connected to surveillance operations – will also be included in the ban.
