Cantor Enters Asian Market

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Cantor Gaming is the latest Las Vegas-based gambling company to move into the Chinese market.

The sports betting and mobile gambling company announced this week that it will help operate a lottery club in Tianjin, along with partners Global Entertainment Investment & Management Co. and the Tianjin Welfare Lottery club.

Cantor will provide infrastructure and technological know-how, and will allow the club to offer wireless wagering, as opposed to paper-based betting.

Cantor is advertising the new 80,000-square-foot club as a stylish place with mah jong parlors, private dining rooms and lounges, as well as lottery games.

Casino games are banned in mainland China, and only the tiny enclave of Macau allows favorites like baccarat. But executives say the Cantor Club will match the luxurious atmosphere of a traditional casino.
