Following blow-out first-half earnings, the CEO of Macau's largest resorts and casino operator, Sands China, told CNBC he expects smooth sailing this year and brushed off concerns about any negative impacts from the government's anti-graft campaign.
After years of exponential growth, Macau - the world's largest gambling destination - has fallen on tougher times recently.
As China's government continues its crackdown on corruption, VIP numbers and junket (VIP room promoters) liquidity have taken a hit, while the distraction of the World Cup soccer tournament, changes to tourist visas and general visitor fatigue dampened appetite from the mass market segment.

But Ed Tracy, CEO of Sands China, told CNBC Asia's "Squawk Box" on Monday he's not concerned.
"The corruption clampdown in China is very real and it's articulated itself in the VIP segment... But we are not VIP centric we are mass market centric - so we'll be impacted the least [compared to other Macau players]," he said.
"We feel very comfortable with our long-term and short-term strategy - it's a steady hand on the wheel now," he added.
Sands China posted record breaking earnings for the first six months of the year, after its 'earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) jumped 35.7 percent on-year to $1.74 billion, driven by gains in the mass market and mass premium market. Revenue rose 24.7 percent to $5.08 billion, while net profit jumped 45.7 percent to $1.37 billion.
But the robust earnings weren't enough to encourage investors, as shares of Sands China weakened by 0.5 percent on Monday. Shares are down 14 percent since early July, amid ongoing concern about the headwinds facing the sector.
