Las Vegas Sands plans to put the Sands Macao (left) up for about US$1.3 billion (S$1.95 billion) after failing to sell its luxury shopping centres in the southern Chinese territory. This is more bad news for the already troubled Las Vegas Sands corporation.

N.J. Casinos Post Biggest Monthly Revenue Drop Ever

nevada-silver-legacy-resort-casino.jpg

Ouch - blame it the recession? Maybe blame this one on stiff competition from neighboring Pennsylvania slots and other factors.

Atlantic City topped itself for all the wrong reasons yesterday, and posted a monthly revenue decrease that outdid its record 19.2 percent drop in February compared with the same month a year ago.

The seaside resort's 11 casinos reported a 19.4 percent decrease in March, the largest year-over-year decline in Atlantic City gambling's 31-year history, according to the New Jersey Casino Control Commission.

The casinos took in $318.4 million in March, compared with $395 million a year earlier.

Carlos Santana Goes to Vegas

Yep - Carlos Santana is getting his own Vegas show. Finally something a bit less revolting than Celine Dion.

Perpetually mustachioed guitar god Carlos Santana has signed a multi-year deal to launch a Las Vegas residency on May 27 -- and that the show, entitled Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through the Hits, will make him the "first rock and roll resident" to come to the Strip (suck it, Celine Dion!).
