Meanwhile, in Macau, authorities have banned over 2,000 people from entering casinos over illegal money exchange activities. And in Vietnam and Cambodia, Donaco benefits from China’s reopening, as revenue rises by nearly half.

A proposal to lower the taxation rate on personal winnings from the lottery or in the casino in the Philippines could fall far short of its goal of helping the disadvantaged. In this week’s Under the Scope, Ben Lee points out how lotteries are commonly known as “a regressive form of tax on the poor”, and that the new measures proposed could effectively be “robbing the poor to give to the rich”.
