Texas Hold'em is the most popular poker game on the planet. It has become somewhat of an institution in today's societies around the world. The craze for the game has grown into something bigger than just the latest fad.

Macau has become the gambling capital of the world. It wrestled that title away from long time champion Las Vegas in 2006. Macau surpassed Vegas in gambling revenue for the year.

Now, for the first time, Macau and Texas Hold'em will come together. The Associated Press reported earlier in the week that major casinos in Macau have received permission from government to offer Texas Hold'em.

The Grand Lisboa moved quickly upon receiving permission. The casino has already added four tables of Hold'em to its casino. Other big casinos will not be far behind.

"We are confident that Texas Hold'em will become very popular here," Sociedade de Jogos de Macau Chief Operating Officer and Director Louis Ng told the AP.

Having already surpassed Las Vegas, the addition of Hold'em to an area that is already number one in gaming revenue can only make the island more powerful that it already is.

Las Vegas Sands, Wynn, and MGM Grand all are in Macau, so it is assumed that all will be running Hold'em tables and bringing in big professional tournaments in the near future.

The house will be allowed to take between three to five percent of bets for each game that is played.
