Las Vegas Sands Eyes Texas Market After Dallas Mavericks Sale

During a quarterly investor call, Patrick Dumont, President and COO of Las Vegas Sands, provided details regarding the recent sale of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks to the Adelson family. Along with the transaction, Dumont was named governor of the Mavericks. With the deregulation of gambling, Dumont is excited about creating integrated resorts in Texas as Las Vegas Sands sets its eyes on that state’s market.

Dumont highlighted the company’s proactive efforts to support the growth of integrated resorts in Texas, seeing the state as a potentially lucrative market. During the call, he said, “We like the opportunity to develop some very unique tourism assets, specifically in Dallas.” Although he was unable to give a timeframe, Dumont emphasized the company’s laser-like dedication to looking into expansion prospects.

With net sales of $2.92 billion for the quarter, up 161% over the same period last year, Las Vegas Sands Corp. announced a noteworthy gain in revenue. In 2023, $10.37 billion was the total revenue. As he highlighted his hope for future growth in Macao and Singapore, Chairman and CEO Robert G. Goldstein expressed pleasure with the financial and operating results.

Texas Gaming Landscape Challenges

Given that the state of Texas allows for the construction of such facilities, Las Vegas Sands has long indicated interest in establishing a resort there. A two-thirds majority vote in the State House and Senate is needed to modify the constitution, and legislators supported by Christian organizations are opposing the endeavor. In 2024, prior advocacy initiatives did not result in significant progress.

One idea that Mark Cuban shared was combining casino resorts with sports facilities. In 2008, he sold the Adelson family the majority of the Dallas Mavericks. Vegas Sands is hopeful about future expansion prospects in Texas and is dedicated to managing the state’s regulatory environment despite any challenges.
