Macau Revenue's Worst Plunge in History

Macau gambling revenue hits a new low in February, with a shocking 48.6 percent decline. Analysts were predicting weak numbers but not as bad as those released on Monday by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, which are the worst on record.

The revenue fall of 18.5 billion patacas has been attributed to a slowdown in Chinese economy as well as to Chinese government’s fierce war on corruption. Reuters news agency reports that February’s results are a continuation of a nine-month consecutive fall in Macau gambling revenue. In related news, police in the Hunan province has detained 19 people after busting a cross-border gang running an Internet gambling operation, Chinese news agency Xinhua reports. A police spokesman reveals that the gang operated the "Shenbo Sun City" website using overseas servers, making a profit of 1.4 billion yuan in the process.

    Well, nothing special here, While Chinese government not decided, what to do next with Macau casino's which is hiding taxes..Another reason of down is that chinese Economy was grown and people making more money, but they decided to spend it on new vehicles, houses or boutique..I mean, they do know, that gamble cost more than a new car :D I am happy about it and want to see this place managed well, so government could get more income from gamble industry sharks..

    I know in my case, if there were a brick and mortar casino close by, I would be playing their and if I won I could forgo the waiting, get my winnings placed in the palm of my hand. China is having problems in a lot of different areas, so it is understandable that the citizens are putting gambling on the back burner for now. Catapultaudio is right, the competition factor is the highest it has ever been. Gambling is a growing pastime that can be engaged at almost any time, know matter where you are.

    Oh come on, it might be a major decline compared with previous figures but the total spend gambled is still incredibly high - I'm sure it isn't a million miles with the take over in Las Vegas ??? Casinos, whether land based or online need to work harder than ever right now to attract and retain customers because of the intense competition, so theres never been a better time for us players!

    interesting about a gang running a gambling website but I am not sure that I understand what the impact on Macau's casino nightlife would be. Perhaps the fact that there isn't a lot of 'extra money' around - anywhere -- any more, doesn't get publicized to the rest of the world, from places llke China. Looks like a great place to go someday, but its Vegas or bust for me.

    "For a double spend to happen, someone has broadcast two transactions that share the same input and total more than the available Bitcoin. They will both appear on the network as unconfirmed until one of them is confirmed. Whichever is confirmed first will work, the other one will eventually be pruned from the network as if it never happened.  You won't find any trace of it on most blockchain explorers (like However does. This is an example It shows the double spend warning and 0 confirmations since the Bitcoin went somewhere else. The same transaction cant be found on Example   You haven't shown any evidence of a double spend (unless I missed something, which is possible) and I haven't found any myself. Assuming this is the players deposit address: 3JciXUmXr4oAQJxRrL51sbKNmEwM7D9g1B (It is definitely an address controlled by cubits)then there were definitely two deposits for 4 Bitcoin Each about 2.5 hours apart. 2016-10-08 02:06:23 3JciXUmXr4oAQJxRrL51sbKNmEwM7D9g1B received 4 BTC, TXID: 67643826693a43411bce4c51713b0491989d14a1346c93e7f84a21b9291e126c 2016-10-08 04:33:47 3JciXUmXr4oAQJxRrL51sbKNmEwM7D9g1B received 4 BTC95594c914e25ecca361b0885dabc663260e9b6547fdd39307810e2c93bdd2e1a The players main address is 1GjEDytM5bKKYtcrYrrd4oDYMyryCCaQev it sent both 4btc deposits and received a bunch of smaller deposits. These addresses were also used in transactions that shared input or outputs with the 1Gj wallet. (No other addresses were used)16ZjTc2sMwkXhiCPMs99dWfJS3sUEor2ps1LKmAMdi9g8TnzbU5FkYyy8dQZQ9WKe94r1JWii56ECnVBQp32nzrQcKdfDWQt5RkmxL None of them are showing any double spend activity on blockcypher. If there was a double spend attempt, what is the address that a transaction was broadcast to that never confirmed?        "

    "і  Halloween has always been in our house the most favorite holiday. My mom tried to do every time for me and my older brother, best costumes. We never bought them, and all sewn by hand. My mother spent long hours writing unique images and projecting them into the tissue, so it is not just our costumes claimed to be the best. That year I was 13 years old. At a party dedicated to Halloween, I met my schoolmate Ronnie Shoemaker, dressed girl. Very sexy girl. At first we did not know. Only when he and his mom came up to us and said hello, I knew someone in front of me. Yet it was hard to imagine that this lovely creature - disguised as a man. "Ronnie, is that you?" - I could not hide my surprise. He just smiled and curtsied. He was wearing a pleated skirt, similar to those required to wear in our girl's school, only this one was shorter. In so short that a couple of times I could even see the edge of his pink lace panties. Suit complement skinny sweater, which emphasized small mounds of breasts. I was blown away! That's realism. They were small, but at each step as the bouncing balls. Through the fabric pullover were clearly visible the contours of the bra. And high heels, golden wig and bright make-up completed the costume nymphet."
