Sands Casino in Macau

23 August 2009

Sands MacauSands Macau is a casino resort located in Macau Peninsula. It is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, and was designed by Paul Steelman Design Group. It comprises a 21,300 square-meter casino, and a 51-suite VIP hotel. This reflects the fact that this casino is a day trip destination for millions of potential visitors, mostly from mainland China, who do not need to stay overnight.

The casino opened on May 18, 2004 at a cost of $240 million. All of the mortgage bonds that were issued to finance construction were paid off in May 2005. In 2006, the casino completed an expansion increasing the casino from 15,329 m2 to 21,275 m2 .  The total area of casino space now houses an unprecedented 740 table games and 1,254 slot machines, more than any other single casino in the world.

“The Sands Macao has welcomed more than 20 million visitors since it opened in May 2004 as the first Las Vegas style casino in Macao,” said Mark Brown, president of the Sands Macao. “The expansion will allow us to provide additional gaming options for our guests, while at the same time enticing new customers to visit our property. We are particularly enthused that the expansion will enable us to serve a larger portion of the highly profitable and rapidly expanding mass table game and slot markets. Our new table game capacity is aimed squarely at that mass market segment, and has allowed us to expand our mass table game capacity by nearly 70 percent.”
