Las Vegas Sands says Singapore casino to top estimates

Las Vegas Sands Corp., the casino company controlled by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, says its Singapore resort is set to exceed analysts’ cash-flow projections this year as gamblers flock to the new complex.

Around 550,000 people visited the Marina Bay Sands casino in the first 25 days of May, COO Michael Leven said in an interview in Las Vegas last week, describing the overall resort as "about 25 percent open". The casino is winning "slightly more" on mass-market gambling than on VIP play since opening on 27 April, he said.
