Venetian Macao Unsurprisingly, The Venetian Macao, like The Venetian Las Vegas, is owned by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation and was designed to be a Las Vegas-style integrated resort casino. In fact, The Venetian Macao is a carbon copy of the Venetia Las Vegas, right down to the canals, gondolas and gondoliers.

Of course, The Venetian Macao is situated on the so-called ‘Cotai Strip’ – the term was coined, and trademarked, by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation – on Cotai Island, which is part of the semi-autonomous territory of Macau, a.k.a. Macau, in southern China. Indeed, with a casino floor covering 546,000 square feet, or just over 5 hectares – visualise five international football pitches fashioned into a single, huge square – The Venetian Macao ranks second, behind only the WinStar World Casino and Resort, in Oklahoma, on the list of the largest casinos in the world.

The sprawling casino floor offers over 800 gaming tables offering, with one or two exceptions, every conceivable table game, plus others, such as Sands stud poker and banking three card baccarat – erroneously advertised as three card poker in some cases – which are not available elsewhere. Slot machines, many of which will be familiar to foreign visitors, although some less so, number over 2,000, with stakes ranging between $0.02 and $100, although typically $1 or less.
