Macau Casino Concessions, Sub-Concessions and Operating Agreements

The relationships between casino companies in Macau is quite complex. We've attempted to clarify all of that with a clear listing of each major concession & sub-concession holder, their current and future developments as well as contracts to operate casinos for resorts that do not have a primary or secondary concession. Just describing it makes us dizzy. All will become crystal clear!
