    How much you want to bet?

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tip offers you brand new information about the locations of April 2007 Macau casinos (including Wynn's). You are authorized to copy (and paste) it for your records.

    Dress Code: When entering Macau casinos you are first scanned, so you be carefull not bring any guns, granades, missiles, etc. (eh, eh, eh!).
    Dressing casual will be just fine.

    Wynn Casino's dancing fountain is a spectacular show of colors,lights and music all in one. The shows are every 15 mins but the longest show is at 12 midnight. A must see attraction when you're in Macau.

    Nam Van Lake Fountain: Macao City View @ Night with Fountain

    by samantha_chee Written Feb 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You could walk from San Ma Lo to Government Headquarters, it will takes about 20 min.

    The Nam Van Lake Fountain is just opposite the Macao SAR Government Headquarters. You could take nice shot of city view, fountain as well as Macau Tower.

    There are some open-air cafe before reaching Government Headquarters, with some chinese musical performance (like er-hu etc).

    Dress Code: casual

    Casino Lisboa: It's gambling time!

    by ahoerner Written Jul 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you plan to stay longer than a day trip in Macau, a must-see attraction is the four storey Casino Lisboa in downtown.

    Casinos in Macau open 24 hours.

    Dress Code: Appropriated for a casino... but I don't doubt you will meet everything.

    Casino Lisboa: The famous Casino

    by bhemak Written Apr 11, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This casino is what most Chinese think of when they think of Macao. It is featured and in movies and TV shows. It look impressive on the outside.

    On the inside it is smoky and cramped. It doesn't have many western games and they are played differently. It has a lot of shops, but not too many restaraunts. I couldn't see where shows would have been or where drinks were served.

    Dress Code: Not hats, no cameras

    Sand's Casino: The modern Casino

    by bhemak Written Apr 10, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This casino is the most modern and for the moment the biggest in town. They have occasional stage shows (singing and or dancing). They have all of the western games (slots, blackjack, craps) and many Asian ones (Pai Gao, and whatever else). They have a buffet and other restaraunts. Many of the staff speak English.

    There are no free drinks while playing and I didn't find a sports book. The place is just big and fun to explore.

    Apparently more casinos like this are on the way to Macao. Soon it will really be the Vegas of Asia. Right now the town is tropical Reno.

    Dress Code: No hats, no cameras.

    I don't think short sleeves or no collar were a problem.

The fountain, constructed by a Portuguese- Spanish company, was moved from the Reservoir to this new site since March 1999. It is equipped with 86 spouts and lit by 288 coloured spotlights. The tallest water jet reaches 80 meters in height.

    All of the nine casinos in Macau are operated under Government franchise by the Sociedade de Turismo e Diversoes de Macau (STDM) and the rules are standard in all gaming halls. The largest casino is the Lisboa Tourist Complex (see photo).
    Visitors to the casinos should read the sign at each entrance. Although there are no entrance fee to the casinos, administration can refuse entry to foreigners under 18 years of age and 21 years for local residents. There is no dress code. Players are also not obliged to tip any employees of the casinos.

    Most Asian tourist come here to gamble (casino, horse or dog racing), enjoy the chickens (working girls) or Karaoke. For Westerns, you can enjoy the newly built clubs with western music in the land reclamation area.
    Various types of clubs and dance spots. Nice mix of Asian and European only in Macao.

    Dress Code: Casual yet clubby

    There are zillions of night clubs and casinos in Macao. The Chinese are inveterate gamblers, and Macao is the place to do it. On weekends the place swarms with people from Hong Kong whose principal reason for being there is to hit the casinos.
