The company, trading as Macau SLOT, operates instant lotteries and betting on football and basketball matches, on a non-exclusive basis, until June 5, 2024.

Macau Slot’s two main betting categories – football and basketball – generated MOP 415 million and MOP 214 million respectively in calendar year 2021. In 2020, the counts were respectively 401 million MOP and 143 million MOP.
