This chapter describes the history of the gaming industry and the effects of the decision to end the monopoly on gaming in 2002 and to grant concessions to foreign companies to operate in Macao. It looks, in particular, at the competition between the casinos and the public for scarce land and the ways in which designated public land has been alienated for the building of casino hotels.
