Macau’s Gambling Watchdog Conducts Surprise Inspections At Junket Operations

Macau’s gambling and casino watchdog, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), conducted a series of surprise inspections at junket-controlled gaming rooms at the city’s casinos.

The inspections came after Chinese media alleged that junket operators in Macau are facilitating gamblers from the mainland to wager at casinos based out of the Philippines and Cambodia. The Xinhua subsidiary media singled out the Junket operator Suncity.

Economic Information Daily, an affiliate of the state-run media Xinhua News Agency, published a report where it singled out Suncity and alleged that the junket operator was running a massive network of online gambling websites which were based overseas and were created to target customers from mainland China.

“The annual amount bet through online gambling in the mainland is more than one trillion yuan ($145 billion), equivalent to nearly twice the annual income of China’s lottery,” read the report.

The Junket operator, however, rubbished the claims and said that they do not operate any online gambling activity.
In a recent statement, the Suncity group also said that they are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
The gambling regulator confirmed the surprise inspections at junket-controlled gaming rooms in Macau and said that it would also serve as a deterrent for illegal gambling activities.

Earlier last week, Macau’s security authorities also confirmed that there are no online gambling websites in the Chinese territory.
