"We enter into our next half century of Macau service with excitement and a desire to support the local market,” Michael Slaughter, president of USPC said in a prepared statement. “We will continue to seek out opportunities from within Macau, not just from afar, in order to deliver value back to the people of Macau as well as our casino customers."
