(Macao, December 7, 2012) - As part of the month-long Stars of the Cotai Strip, celebrity models Li Ying Zhi and Han Zi Xuan joined Sands China Ltd. Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer David Sisk today, to launch Fast Action Baccarat (FAB) at The Venetian® Macao.
The new fast-action version of the baccarat game is an innovative development from Sands China Ltd. and its Macao launch provides a brand new way to play the popular game.
"Sands China Ltd. is continuously looking for ways to innovate the gaming experience for our customers and FAB offers an exciting twist on the much-loved baccarat game," commented Mr. Sisk. "Its rapid pace, lower minimum game limit and space to accommodate up to 60 players per table are what really set it apart from traditional baccarat games - it's unlike any other baccarat gameplay in Macao."
FAB is made possible by an innovative new table design, which features automated chip collection via trap doors built into the table and mobile chip trays that allow dealers to quickly hand out chips for winning bets. The result is a high-energy, rapid-fire baccarat experience able to accommodate large groups of players at one game.
"It is a priority for us to explore avenues to bring different experiences to our customers and ensure that we diversify our gaming offer within the market; FAB is one big way we're doing that," Mr. Sisk added.
FAB is first being introduced to visitors of Sands China's Cotai Strip® development at The Venetian Macao and will launch at other Sands China Ltd. properties in the future.
On arrival, guests were welcomed to the FAB launch by a beautiful McLaren sports car on display at The Venetian's West Lobby entrance, as well as entertainment from violinist triplet-sisters Alizma.
