MGM China, one of the biggest Macau casino operators, announced it would pay extra payments to all non-management staff. According to the official data, around 90% of the company’s staff fall within the “non-management” category and will receive a bonus almost equal to an average month’s salary. The extra payment will be paid in 2 parts: 1 before and 1 after the Chinese New Year. Wynn Macau and Melco Resorts and Entertainment also joined MGM China, paying bonuses to employees. Macau’s casino operators say that the bonuses are supposed to make up for the challenges casino employees faced during the still-ongoing pandemic.

We thank our team members from the bottom of our hearts for staying united, as well as being loyal.

Wynn Macau also said that the announced bonus would be equal to one month’s salary and granted to all eligible staff on the peninsula and Wynn Palace on Cotai. However, they did not specify the exact date when the bonuses would be paid. While MGM China highlighted the “non-management” selection criteria, Wynn Macau did not mention how exactly they would be selecting the lucky employees. Anyway, the company assured that the bonus would go to around 98.5% of its staff. Wynn Macau also expressed its gratitude to all employees for withstanding the challenges brought by 2020: “This bonus is being awarded to show the company’s appreciation to all employees for their dedication and commitment during what has been a uniquely challenging 2020.”

Wynn Macau plans to pay 70% of the bonus in cash and the rest 30% in the so-called “Wynn Care Macau Pass’ consumption card” that can be used in Macau for paying for the services and shopping. According to the company’s management, such a combined approach will make Macau staff support many other local essential businesses that have also been facing certain challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Melco Resorts and Entertainment was pleased to thank all its workers for hard work during hard times and their dedication to what they are doing. The company said that it appreciates every contribution its employees made during these hard times and is sure that it’s ready to face new challenges with optimism. Just like MGM China, Melco is going to pay a non-recurring discretionary bonus to all non-management staff. The bonuses will be paid before the Chinese New Year. Lawrence Ho Yau Lung, Melco’s chairman and chief executive, added that 2020 had been “challenging, affecting businesses and communities all around the world.”

Earlier in January, Sociedade de Jogos de Macau SA (SJM) also joined this measure and announced it would pay what it termed “living subsidies” to all eligible staff. The subsidies will be equal to 1.5 or 2 month’s gross salary and will be paid in 2 equal parts: the first part on 6 January 2021 and the second one in July 2021. The bigger bonus will be paid to all eligible workers that receive less than US$2,505 a month. All other eligible employees will get the bonus equivalent to 1.5 month’s salary. The only thing that remains in question is who exactly falls under the “eligible” category.

As of now, 4 casino operators in Macau are planning to provide their employees with early year bonuses. These companies include Wynn Macau, Melco, MGM China, and SJM.
