Setting up a Casino in China

Establishing gambling activities through a casino in China is strictly forbidden, but investors looking to thrive in this sector can set up casinos in Macau or Hong Kong two special administrative regions of China. Opening a company for gambling purposes can be done with the help of our company formation agents in China who can offer assistance in opening a WFOE or the Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise in China.

Macau and Hong Kong, the administrative regions in China are the only destinations where casinos can be opened by both domestic and foreign entrepreneurs. For a minimum share capital of CNY 30,000, a WFOE can be easily established and it represents the well-known structure, the limited liability company.

  • blackjack, roulette, slot machines, baccarat or Fan Tan can be operated in a casino;
  • live poker tournaments can be met in Chinese casinos;
  • poker tables with cash games are part of the gambling activities of a casino;
