    My first trip to Macau was in 2000. My last was Sept 2013. Gaming authorities have learned a lot in that time span. They fully ralize that underground gaming is not in their best interest, nor is it in China's interest. There are now three agencies watching what goes on in Macau....the Macau Gaming Control Board, The China Ministry of Public Security and the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Underground gaming is run by the Triad and they don't pay taxes. This is no longer acceptable, and rightly so.

    Just like Las Vegas gaming has a friend in Senator Harry Reid, China smartened up and now cooperating with Macau.
