babylon casino

Gambling in Macau has been legal since the 1850s when the Portuguese government legalized the activity in the colony. Since then, Macau has become known worldwide as the "Monte Carlo of the Orient", and gambling has become a significant part of the city's economy.

Macau's economy relies heavily on gambling. At this moment, according to official statistics, gambling taxes form 70% of Macau's government income.

Macau has twenty-eight casinos, of which the biggest is the The Venetian Macau. They all operate under a government franchise and under a common set of rules.


Located in Macau's Fisherman's Wharf,
Babylon Casino opened up for the public
on December 23, 2005.


It is owned by Dr. Ho's SJM.


Babylon Casino was originally destined to be a nightclub on Fisherman's Wharf but the plan was altered and a casino was set up instead.


Babylon offers 120 slot machines and about a hundred table games.
It opens 24 hours a day.


Babylon casino is small by mega resort standards.

  14. 28 casinos, so many ways to lose my money, or so many ways to win more, I have to admit I do like the machines, not quite so much the table games, they are rather complicated for me.
