Casino company eyes Greek market

The Sands Macao casino sits behind Fisherman’s Wharf in Macau, China, in a file photo. Billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who owns the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, indicated yesterday that Greece could be his next target market. News agencies cited Adelson as telling a media briefing in Singapore that Las Vegas Sands had explored developing a Las Vegas-style strip complete with luxury hotels and spas in either Greece, Italy or Spain. No further information was provided. In December, Adelson also said the company was ‘actively looking’ at projects in Japan, Taiwan and India. Las Vegas Sands Corp, the world’s most valuable casino firm, is present in Singapore, Macau and the United States but has yet to enter a European market.
