The past several years China and private investors have pumped lots of money into revamping Macau's infrastructure and promoting gambling internationally, not just Asians. One of the titans of Las Vegas big casino and resort development has actually made Macau the place for a lavish masterpiece: the Wynn Macau. Just to give another example of the mega-bucks floating around Macau, a 36 yr. old Chinese businessman representing one of the city's casino resorts, successfully made a $350,000 bid for a rare Michael Jackson item - an item that alone might lure me back to Macau.
