Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem Opened

28 May 2009

Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem has been opened by the Las Vegas Sands Corp. on May 22. After the numerous preparations and final arrangements the new casino was ready to accept the thousands of gamblers. 

Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem is situated not far from New York City and Philadelphia. Slot machines and video poker are the main attractions of the casino and the players will be able to occupy 3,000 gaming machines at a time. In addition, this place is a real paradise for gourmets as it has a number of great restaurants and bars.

The ceremonial opening of the Sands Casino was really great and beat all the casino openings known in the state.  After three days of running the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board released the first figures that are really shocking. Every day the gambling floors of the casino were visited by more than 20,000 players who made the bet worth of $18.4 million during the first day. This bet amount is twice bigger than the sum wagered during the opening of the famous Harrah's Chester venue. 

The casino owners are not only happy with these results but also are inspired by the lifted spirits of the visitors at grand opening. Moreover, the new gaming venue will be beneficial for the local economy that suffers from shortage.
