Being the largest gambling centre in the world, Macau is often the subject of adventurous bids from various casino operators looking to tap into the lucrative market.
And in the latest developments, MGM Resorts has been given permission to open a second complex in the Chinese district as it looks to step up its presence.
The company's current casino is located in the Macau peninsula, and the fresh establishment will be built on the Cotai as developers set about starting the large-scale project.
Once it is completed, the complex will boast 1,600 hotel rooms, 500 gaming tables and 2,500 slot machines for guests to try their hand at hitting the jackpot.
With Macau often hosting a number of high stakes poker tournaments throughout the year, Australian poker fans often keep a close eye on the district in order to stay up-to-date with the action.
But if they're hoping to get a look at the new MGM casino, they will have to wait three years for the resort to be built.
