Wow! I am not into gambling but I am really fascinated on how Macau progress. I can't believe Wynn, GM, Venetian and Stratosphere (?) are opening casinos in this area. I wonder if other casinos like The Bellagio, The Palms, Mirage and other casinos in Las Vegas will open one too? Can anyone maybe provide some news?

I think Monaco has been the densest city in the world for quite some time.

Macao comes second with a small territory size.

Apparently Macau has overtaken Las Vegas as the world's biggest gambling centre now, with gambling revenue overtaking that of Vegas in 2006!

Do you mean MGM or do you mean The Mirage? They're two different casinos under the same ownership.

I wonder if Macau is getting Caesars Palace...
