Wynn Macau Casino Wing
On the opposite side of the the shopping promenade is the hallway that leads to the casino, Wynn Club and the VIP entrance. The casino promenade hallway (top right) leads back to the main lobby. The casino entrance is directly to the right, the doorway at the end are restrooms and the black column base poking out at the end of the carpeting is the Wynn Signature shop (bottom left). The VIP Host office is directly to the left (top left). The hallway continues another 20 feet behind us to the Wynn Club and VIP entrance (right photo).
The VIP Entrance has a lobby lounge to the left of where this photo was taken and a reception desk to the right. You don't need to be a VIP to use the VIP entrance, but only VIPs can use the registration services here. You should probably consider using this entrance the first time you visit Wynn Macau. Why? Chinese superstitions, of course!
The Chinese are unbelievably superstitious people, and quite the gamblers as well. Chinese gambling superstition states that you should never enter a casino from its main entrance, always from a side or back door. I don't really know why this is, I'm sure someone out there has an explanation.
Superstition Approved Entrances to Wynn Macau:
- Via Ferry Terminal Shuttle: The shuttle bus drops off at the superstition compliant rear entrance, behind the casino. Safe.
- On foot from StarWorld: - enter through the into the newly opened doors closest to StarWorlds porte cochere.
- On foot from Hotel Lisboa tunnel / Nam Van Lake plaza area: - hang a right before you go under the porte cochere, the VIP entrance is to the side of the Il Teatro building
- Via Taxi: ask the driver to bypass the porte cochere and go to the VIP entrance before you pull into the driveway.
We don't want anybody having bad luck because the went in the wrong doorway now, do we? I'm not sure if this superstition applies to every time you enter the casino, or just the first time for a given day or trip. I've got plans to create a map of 'acceptable entrances' to some of the top tier joints in Macau, you shouldn't be gambling in the other ones, so it doesn't really matter how the hell you go inside, trust me.
