Recent statistic numbers state that Macau is currently the biggest gaming market in the world. Do you agree?
Based on revenue Macau is the biggest gaming in the world by a long way.
How do you see Macau's market? Is there still place to growth?
I think the Macau market is still growing. The recent opening of Galaxy Macau added critical mass to Cotai. You can really see the Cotai strips evolution into a mass market destination. Galaxy Macau is a great complement to City of Dreams and the Sands China properties on the Cotai strip.
With operations worldwide and presence in all the international markets, how important is Asia in general and Macau in particular for Bally?
Macau is critical to Bally worldwide. It is the biggest gaming market in the world. I helps us to make us better as a company. It challenges us to continue to provide products that help our customers manage their business and also provide products that their customers want to enjoy and play. Macau is very competitive and competition drives innovation. We are learning from Macau every day.
