Macau’s Game Inspection Coordinating Bureau (DICJ) has reportedly reached a preliminary agreement regarding the introduction of a new rule banning game workers from entering casinos outside of normal working hours.
Paulo Martins Chan, head of DICJ, said his department still needs more time to gather public opinion on the issue and especially wants to hear from dealers, according to a report by the Teledipusao TV and radio station.
When news broke that the initial position was in place, a local Kruppier Association said dealers could lose their jobs if the after-hours bill was passed, urging the government to clarify its position and punish those found to have broken the rules.
Chan told the broadcaster, “It hasn’t been decided yet.” “We’re still gathering input from the public and the dealer community in particular. It depends on the situation. We need to see what is happening and gather opinions from the various parties involved so that one opinion may not prevail.”
