The virtual mini-stores were built to showcase our cooperation with real Macau retail brands on the metaverse. To engage with digital gamers/travellers, we have designed two games of skill: the “Fortune Cookie” treasure hunt and the “Avoid the Tourists” games. Players who complete these challenges can win real prizes redeemable in Macau. We hope to expand Mini Macau to other Macanese brands for advertising and for online and offline booking/e-commerce opportunities.”

Mr Chan also said: “Mini Macau will serve as a prototype for the future development of our own travel and hospitality metaverse platform, called “Resortverse”. In our Resortverse, we plan to bring real resorts and travel destinations into the metaverse and provide a platform with gamification and rewards. Our travel and hospitality metaverse platform will enable resorts and merchants to engage with digital travelers through online gamification and offer real offline rewards and coupons that can benefit their businesses. An increase in virtual travel through our immersive metaverse would attract new foot traffic to real-world resorts and travel destinations. Our plan is to launch our travel and hospitality platform Resortverse by the end of 2022.”
