The Nevada casino operator is reported to have begun negotiations with potential sports betting partners.
US.- Casino operator Las Vegas Sands is looking to enter the US sports betting market according to reports from media sources.
Robert Goldstein, the company’s acting chief executive officer, is reported to be in early negotiations with potential sports betting partners.
Goldstein stepped up last week when the company’s chairman and chief executive Sheldon Adelson took a leave of absence to undergo cancer treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
While prospective partners have not been identified, talks are believed to involve either leveraging the Sands brand or the development of a separate betting platform by the company.
Las Vegas Sands currently offers sports betting at the Venetian and Palazzo properties in Las Vegas under the management of William Hill US.
