Casino Operators in Macau Asked to Prepare for ‘Mock Attacks’

MacauSix major casino operators in Macau had a meeting with Judiciary Police as well as with the gaming regulator to discuss the security measures in detail in light of Mandalay Bay mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Macau which is regarded as the Mecca of Gaming World has been extra cautious since June this year when a gunman entered the Resorts World Manila casino in the Philippines and wrecked havoc after opening fire and setting the gaming tables on fire.

The mass shooting at Resorts World Manila has led to the unfortunate death of 38 people and exposed serious flaws in the security procedures of the casino. Macau’s casino operators went on record at that time and said they would increase the security measures to make sure such kind of incident does not take place in Macau.


The Mandalay Bay shooting which took place on October 1st was another reminder to the casinos in Macau that flaws in casino security protocol were being exploited by the criminals for carrying out the mass shooting. Stephen Paddock who was staying on the 32nd-floor number on Mandalay Bay Hotel bypassed security protocols easily and took over 18 weapons to his room which was used later on to carry out the worst shooting in the history of casinos.

Mandalay Bay which is owned by MGM International has not shed light how the 64-year-old gunman was able to take such a vast collection of weapons inside the hotel and did not have any security person checked on him.

The Judiciary Police of Macau has urged several casino operators to compose a special task force who would be trained to handle any emergency situation. The Director of Judiciary Police, Chau Wai Kuong, said that the casinos in Macau did not impose serious security threats, but still it is imperative on the part of the casinos to keep property security check to handle any attack.

The casino operators are asked by the Judiciary Police to form a unique team to handle any emergency situation. The casinos are proposed to invest in protective equipment, employee training, and metal detectors. The police want the frontline casino staff to prepare themselves for any attack and receive physical training so that they know what kind of steps to be taken to limit casualties and remain calm at the same time.

The Judicial Police have urged the casino operators to install metal detectors at all entry points, and all visitors should undergo a complete security check. The casinos in Macau should have a strict policy in place that should not allow any baggage to be brought on any casino floor.
