Private Jets and Golf to Attract Chinese High Rollers

The habit of high roller gamblers from China to take risks and emerge victorious or lose millions in one trip has earned the awe of casino operators across the world. This phenomenon is most obvious in Australia’s single profitable casino Echo Entertainment which depends on its Asian players for providing one third of its overall sales and treats them like celebrities.

These elite gamblers were responsible for enhancing earnings of Macau’s casinos by nearly four times, forcing large casino operators like Crown Resorts to develop an effective marketing strategy to bring them into Australia. This junket operation of sponsoring gamblers from Macau to Sydney interested in taking high risks has helped the casino increase its profits by nearly 25 percent.

Pampering high rollers with VIP treatment

 The casinos of Australia promise and offer these high stake players VIP’s Rich Lifestyle and gambling thrill in an exclusive setting within VIP lounges. This has made it attractive for players from China who have helped the revenue of Echo Entertainment grow by three times to AUD 397 million within few months. In Sydney the earnings of Echo owned Star casino itself was at AUD 389 million from VIP customers signifying a growth of 30 percent in gross revenue. Crown Casino also reported a 53 percent increase in revenue from its elite gamblers representing the highest rate of growth within a year.

To pamper its VIP customers, Crown Resorts and Casino got Bombardier Jets to transfer them from Macau to Australia and back instead of its usual Gulfstream jets which led to expenditure of nearly AUD 100 million.

Exclusive casinos for high rollers

Crown Resorts is also building a casino close to the Echo Entertainment casino to attract customers from Macau and Singapore. These famous and rich players find Australia an attractive option as they already have family and business connections in the country and this is like a free trip for them with family where they can relax in the glamour of famous and rich celebrities. Australia has a large Chinese immigrant population which settled down several years ago and own large tracts of real estate property.

Echo is working with Hong Kong based firm Chow Tai Fook Enterprises to build a new casino resort in Sydney, which will be uniquely designed on the beach side. To increase the attraction quotient of the casino resort Echo is planning to buy a golf course in the region.

Estimates Costs of Cairns’ Latest Casino

Casino resort Aquis which is proposed for construction in Cairns is an ambitious project of Queensland government. It is keen on bringing in wealthy new gamblers into the area to help revive local economy. Though the project is touted to be “largest man made wonder on earth” with development costs likely to be in the range of billions of dollars it is being set up to attract top international gamblers from HongKong and Macau who do not mind winning or losing million within few days. This thought does not surprise local residents of Cairn as they have seen the progress which high dealers in gambling casinos have bought to coastal areas of Australia.

Cairns Casino

Why early Australian casinos were unsuccessful?

Though the developers are presenting this project as a means to attract both tourists and gamblers as an attractive destination to play casino games and also enjoy hospitality of the resort. But local authorities and general public are skeptical of this idea as in the past these ambitious ideas have not borne fruit. Australian casinos which were introduced in the past have lost popularity in the international circuit as they concentrated on pleasing locals.

Canberra Casino is the only one in Australia which has a casino history to speak of and has managed to stay profitable as it has banned all local pokers slot machine players. Even Australia’s famous casino Crown Casino has revealed that half of its earnings amounting to AUD 376 million came from slot machines while AUD 330 came from large players.

Why Aquis has a better chance at profitability?

The promoters of Aquis are confident that this venture will break previous opinions and myths to emerge as a welcoming gambling zone which will attract high rollers from Asia and other parts of the globe. The project document states that this resort will have several types of casino games comprising 1500 poker slot machines and 750 gaming tables for card games. Australian casino operators in Macau have noticed that Chinese gamblers have a noticeable lack of interest in slot machines and prefer card games with high stakes.

The only problem sociologists see from this project is that locals with gambling problems may be underwriting the casino with expenditure at poker slot machines to the tune of around $33.5 million every year.
