New rules could shut Mocha Marina Plaza
A ban on gaming venues in residential districts will close down at least one slot machine parlour, Union Gaming Research wrote in a note to clients.
Melco’s Mocha Marina Plaza, located on Rua de Pequim, is likely to close its doors but the analysts downplayed the impact. They believe the operator “may have identified another parcel” to open another Mocha Club venue.
On Monday the secretary for Economy and Finance said the bylaw for the removal of slot machine parlours from residential neighbourhoods “is in the final stage of the legislative process”.
Francis Tam Pak Yuen also said the government would consider removing the slot machines from the Macau Canidrome. Union Gaming Research said that would have a negligible impact on the dog track’s operator, Stanley Ho’s SJM.
