In this photo taken on Thursday, May 23, 2013, an attendant demonstrates the game of baccarat on a baccarat gaming table during the Global Gaming Expo Asia in Macau. Almost all of Macau’s $38 billion in gambling revenue last year - six times more than the Las Vegas Strip - came from card game, much of it from Chinese high-rollers betting borrowed money and dwarfing the takings from slots, blackjack or roulette. Wherever you go in the former Portuguese colony, you’ll see chain-smoking Chinese gamblers crowded around baccarat tables as players peel back their cards, hoping their luck will give them a good hand.
