Ho Passes Reins to Macau Casino Empire

Posted by Hunter

This seems inevitable.

Stanley Ho, at one time the singular Macau casino kingpin, has transferred control of STDM/SJM to entities controlled by his family.

Ho's grip seems to have lessened in recent years as the businessman had ailed in hospital for some time after a fall.

These ownership shifts are interesting, partly because we don't know what changes might be in store but also because one of his daughters, Pansy, is MGM Resorts' business parter in the MGM Grand Macau project. That relationship got the company into some hot water with New Jersey regulators due to her complicated relationship with her father.

This gets curiouser and curiouser.
Ho was "forced" to make video?

And when Benny Binion was released from prison on the tax charge, and had to give up his gaming license, He didnt have anything to do with "Daily operations" of the Horseshoe until he died, right?????
