After incredibly long negotiations and rumors, the gambling corporation of Las Vegas Sands has announced the construction of its branch in Madrid, Spain. To describe the whole scale of future project, you need to learn more about the "assets" of “Las Vegas Sands Corp”. The owner of this corporation is Sheldon Adelson, one of the richest men in the world. First, the Venetian is one of the oldest projects of the company. This project is very similar to such other projects as The Palazzo, Sands Expo, Convention Center and the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem. All of these sites are located in the U.S., mostly in Las Vegas. They are ideal for casino games and gambling.
Secondly, we are talking about the large-scale entertainment complexes, such as the Venetian Macao, Sands Macao and Marina Bay Sands. These complexes are located in China and Singapore, respectively. The complex of Marina Bay feeds the entire economy of Singapore. And this is only one single part of the entire possessions of this gigantic corporation.
Since 2007, Adelson has cherished his dream of building a European Las Vegas. His main goal is to expand his influence in the world of casino games and seize the new territories. Interestingly, his aim is to focus gamblers’ attention on the fact that this is the branch of Las Vegas. Hence, he’s planning to include the name "Las Vegas" or "Vegas" to the name of his new gambling project. But the course of his thoughts and plans has been prevented by the global financial crisis. And now is the perfect time for the most serious construction to begin.
If Las Vegas Sands plans to build something, you can be sure that the project will be incredibly expensive, incredibly spectacular, and incredibly big. The company’s present goal is to build casinos, hotels, bars, restaurants, shopping sprees and other facilities near Madrid. It will take at least 10 years to implement this project. The total investment is estimated at $ 17 billion, and the total building area is as huge as 1,000 stadiums. Adelson is sure that he will be able to make his dream come true, and millions of gamblers will be able to play casino games in his EuroVegas. However, not so long ago, the whole Spain was still wondering where this gambling miracle is to be build. Both Madrid and Barcelona are ideal for the new entertainment complex, but it turns out that Madrid wants it more.
Ana Botella, the mayor of Madrid, has repeatedly stated that EuroVegas will be a new ray of light for the city. And these words reflect the Spanish reality. The primary concern of its citizens is the financial crisis and the unemployment. EuroVegas will make it possible for people to find new job, and not only to play casino games or to entertain themselves. At the same time, not everyone is so optimistic about casino games and about EuroVegas. Hence, the wave of strikes occurs all over Madrid.Share on:
