Here are our picks for the best and currently, the only places to play poker in Macau! Poker in Macau is viewed by the casinos as something of a novelty, and I guess most would rather not have any poker at all.

The drastic fall of revenue combined with the opening of several new casinos is now possibly creating a window of opportunity for poker in Macau.
Casino operators are increasingly looking to address the mass market. If they see poker as a marketing tool to bring customers into their venue instead of a profit source, we could see the game realise its full potential.
