Sands to Start Online Gaming

The Casino City Times had this article about the Sands stepping into online gaming:

"Las Vegas Sands Corp. will venture into the world of online gambling through a partnership with fledgling wireless-gaming device provider Cantor Gaming.

The casino operator announced Monday it will offer its gaming property brands -- Venetian, Sands, Palazzo and Paiza -- to an online casino site targeted toward gamblers in the United Kingdom. Cantor, an affiliate of New York-based financial services company Cantor Fitzgerald, will manage the site, which would be licensed out of Alderney in the British Channel Islands.
