Sands confirms May 22 opening date for Pennsylvania casino

(US).- The Las Vegas Sands Corporation informed that it will open its new casino in Bethlehem for the first time to the public on May 22. That will be followed about two weeks later by a series of special events to mark the casino’;s official grand opening on June 9.


ands Bethlehem is being built on the site of the old Bethlehem Steel plant. It will feature 3,000 slot machines and a number of entertainment and dining options.

"We are excited to be opening our first property on the East Coast and in combining the proud heritage of this historic site with the excitement of casino gaming, live entertainment, and great dining, we will have created the type of unique experience we believe will annually attract millions of visitors from across the region," said Sheldon G. Adelson, chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corporation.

"With its close proximity to New York, Philadelphia, and the northern New Jersey suburbs, we are confident Sands Bethlehem will quickly establish itself as one of the region’s top gaming and entertainment destinations," added Adelson.

Casino officials say the May 22 opening day is subject to final Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approval and successful completion of two pre-opening test nights.

Plans are for the site to continue to grow with the addition of 2,000 more slot machines, 18,580 sqm of shopping space, and nearly 4,645 sqm of flexible multi-purpose space, which will allow the property to accommodate meetings, conventions, and a variety of special events.

The resort’s master plan also includes the future opening of a 300-room hotel, a National Museum of Industrial History and SteelStax - an arts and cultural center.
