casino lovers

Casino Lisboa (Chinese: 葡京娛樂場) is a hotel casino in Sé, Macau, China. The casino is owned by the Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau (STDM), a Stanley Ho company. This three-storey complex was built in late 1960s.

The original casino and the 12-storey round hotel tower were built in 1970 by Stanley Ho, Teddy Yip, Yip Hon and Henry Fok. A 270-room extension was added in 1991 for a total of 927 rooms. In 2006, another extension, the Grand Lisboa, was built next to the current complex. Therefore, a total of 2,362 rooms are in place in Hotel Lisboa as of 2010. This expansion is being done partly in competition with the newly opened Wynn Macau, located right next to the original Casino Lisboa.

This hotel has 58 floors and is branded as the tallest building in Macau. The restaurants and casino opened in 2007, while the hotel followed suit a year later. The casino has 800 gaming tables and 1,000 slot machines. It was also popular with poker players as it was the first one in Macau to hold Texas Hold ‘Em ring games. It was also the first casino in the city to offer craps, which has since become popular in other casinos in the area.
