    ok, believe it or not im going to a wedding in macau later this year. i know that gambling is big in macau, and i like to get some gaming in when i can. what are the differences between gambling in macau and gambling in casinos here in the states? are the games the same or do they play all kinds of different games? i like poker but i don't want to be throwing my money away cause i don't know the rules. and i don't want to make too many "feaux-pas" or whatever that saying is ;)

    Hi Paul,

    Gambling in Macau is much different than here in the states, like Las Vegas. The games of choice are blackjack, baccarat, roulette, boule, Sic bo, Fan-Tan, keno and tiger slot machines.

    The most popular game by far is baccarat with VIP high-roller baccarat accounting for up to 60% of Macau's revenue. I was in Macau in the Fall of 2006 and couldn't find a poker table anywhere but I expect that to change as Macau grows. Write back if you have any more questions or want to give us your report on Macau after your visit.
