Las Vegas Sands Wins Singapore Bid

Posted by Hunter

I didn't realize they were ready to make a decision on this already... Looks like LV Sands won the right to build the first casino in Singapore, a huge coup for the company. Shares are up sharply on the news.

They have pledged $3.6 billion for the project in the Marina Bay district of the city.

I had really hoped Harrahs would win the bid--there iport seemed to be an attraction that would actually attract big crowds including families.
The Science museum at the Sands just sounds plain boring and there's nothing else to do--didnt sound like there would be a massive mall.

Devon -- No, Wynn pulled out of this bid. He said he is already spread too thin, with Macau and Vegas. He didn't need a third country to be traveling too also.

Do you know the cost for Sands to build the IR in Singapore. About a month ago, all the articles were saying they were spending 3.6 billion; now they are saying 3.2 billion??
