HONG KONG, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Galaxy Entertainment Group Limited ("GEG" or "the Group") (HKEx stock code: 27) won two distinguished awards at the prestigious International Gaming Awards ceremony held at The Savoy Hotel in London on 3 February 2014. The Group was named Casino Operator of the Year Australia/Asia for the third year running and in addition, Dr. Lui Che-woo, Chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group was awarded the Outstanding Contribution Award.

Dr. Lui Che-woo, Chairman of GEG, said:

"It is a great honour for Galaxy Entertainment Group, and for me personally as an Asian entrepreneur, to receive two awards from our esteemed international industry peers.  The Group has achieved a great deal in a relatively short timeframe since being founded in 2002, and its tremendous success stems from seamlessly combining gaming and non-gaming elements under one roof to create a new, exciting, and all-encompassing leisure and entertainment experience for visitors.

Being recognised as the Casino Operator of the Year Australia/Asia is a great endorsement of our vision, and a fitting tribute to our high quality management team and the commitment of our 16,000 team members who work tirelessly every day to deliver our 'World Class, Asian Heart' service standard to each and every guest.

As our business grows, sharing our success with the Macau and Hong Kong communities is becoming ever more important. During 2013 GEG implemented a number of diverse community and volunteering initiatives through its dedicated 'GEG Volunteer Team' who contributed many hours of community services. We also made donations to many charitable organisations and people in Macau, Hong Kong and Mainland China.

Looking ahead, we will continue to ensure that our 'World Class, Asian Heart' service philosophy, which draws on providing visitors with a combination of the best hospitality practices and standards from both the West and the East, permeates GEG's properties, products, services and people. We are currently about half way through the construction of Galaxy MacauTM Phase 2, and will soon commence the construction of Phases 3 and 4. These awards are a great testament to the progress we have made towards our ultimate goal to be 'globally recognised as Asia's leading gaming and entertainment corporation'."
