Las Vegas Sands is in talks to develop a casino resort in what CEO Rob Goldstein called a major, top-tier country in Asia in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The casino, should it proceed, would be of similar size and scale as LVS’ Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, he said.
Marina Bay Sands opened in 2010 at a $6.9bn development cost, offering 2,300 slots, 600 table games and 2,500 hotel rooms.
While a lot of countries have reached out to LVS over the years, this opportunity feels as though it could be a major prospect, he said.
Goldstein confirmed that Japan is no longer on the LVS radar but noted that wherever the company ends up, it plans to implement a similar model that has served well in Las Vegas, Singapore and Macau.
