Casino stocks are rising higher on Monday, and they have China’s easing Covid-19 restrictions to thank for the boost!

China is planning to reduce restrictions in Macau, the world’s gambling hub, starting in November. This will allow tour groups from Mainland China to visit the casinos in the area for the first time in almost three years.

That will allow visitors from the provinces of Guangdong, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Fujian to plan trips to the casino hub without going through the e-visa process, TheStreet notes.

To go along with that, Macau will also be making it easier to obtain e-visas for residents in other regions. This has the city expecting daily visitations of up to 40,000, as compared to the 11,000 reported in August.
