Number one US casino firm in Macau is…

TAGs: Las Vegas Sands, Macau, MGM Resorts, Wynn Resorts

macau-new-thumbThe last time we reported on a poll here at things were a little different. For one, the lights were turned off and things were little darker and we were as one. Now you get double the fun and there are even two polls for you to feast your eyes upon with here on and the other at the AfterParty site.

Last week we wanted the definitive answer to that burning question among that is asked of the Far East’s glut of ex-pat US casino firms: Which US casino firm will have the best year in Macau?

The three companies were close all week but coming out in third and as a result last position of the three was MGM Resorts International on 24 percent.

Second place went to Las Vegas Sands on 35 percent.

The winner, though, with 41 percent of the poll is Wynn Resorts.

To say the firm has had a rocky 2012 would be an understatement and a court fight between Steve Wynn and their biggest shareholder Kazuo Okada is still going strong. Our readers must think the court case will go their way in 2013 although any firm that has started to establish itself in the Macau market should be commended – it kicks Las Vegas’ ass everyday of the week.

With the conference season moving into Europe next week, the current poll is based on the European market as we ask readers: In which of these EU countries do you most want to see changes? The options available include Germany, Greece, France, Spain and Italy. For the answers check back next week.
