During the soft opening of Marina Bay Sands on Tuesday, the CEO of Las Vegas
Sands, Mr Sheldon Adelson, said he expects the Marina IR casino to break even
in just five years. Will it be able to do so? We take a look at Singapore's 2nd

The approved gaming area at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) is 15,000 square meters,
comprising less than 3 percent of the integrated resort’s gross floor area.
In total it will have almost 500 table games and 1,600 slot machines, says MBS.
The casino is spread over four levels, and is able to accommodate up to 15,000
people. A non-smoking floor is at level 1, while the upper 2 levels are
reserved for premium players.
