The thing that blows me away is that the pent up demand from mainland population is vastly larger than half a million people. Whether the economy in china is growing slow or fast, Macau will be the escape destination for a billion+ people for a long long time. Infrastructure and transportation is improving, opening the market to more people from further away. Resorts already set up or coming soon will ride a 2 or 3 decade wave of bookings. Macau is a juggernaut of revenue for many decades to come.
