(AP) The Chinese arm of U.S. casino company MGM Resorts International has won official approval for its new casino-resort in the world's most lucrative gambling market, Macau.


Notice of MGM China's plan to build a $2.5 billion resort in the Cotai district was published Wednesday in Macau's official government gazette.


The announcement means the Las Vegas-based company has cleared another hurdle as it races to build a second casino to compete with rivals in the Asian gambling hub. The company said in November that it had received a long-awaited land concession for the project.


MGM China plans a five-star, 1,600-room hotel with 500 gambling tables and 2,500 slot machines. The company is a joint venture between MGM Resorts and Pansy Ho, daughter of Macau casino kingpin Stanley Ho.
