Las Vegas Sands Furthers UK Efforts With Deal For Online Gaming Site

Agreement with Cantor Gaming will provide End-to-end Online Gaming Portal

Las Vegas, Dec 04, 2006, PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network. Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS) today announced that an agreement has been reached between one of it's affiliates and Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of the global financial services company Cantor Fitzgerald, to launch an online casino and poker site initially aimed at serving the United Kingdom market.

Cantor Gaming will provide a complete online casino and poker destination featuring Las Vegas Sands brands, including The Venetian, Sands, Palazzo, and Paiza brands. The site will offer the most popular casino games, including blackjack, roulette, baccarat, video poker, slots and online poker. The offering will be part of a full end to end gaming service, including customer age and location verification, online payment processing, and customer services. The site is expected to be launched during the second quarter of 2007. The site will be hosted, and the operator will be licensed, in compliance with the laws of Alderney, British Channel Islands. It will not accept U.S. customers.

"This is another opportunity for our company to create greater awareness of our global brands and further establish our presence and interest in the UK market", said Bill Weidner, president and chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp. "Additionally, as the internet gaming landscape continues to evolve this effort will put us in a strong position to evaluate and react to other potential opportunities."

Weidner said Cantor's expertise in managing sophisticated financial transactions, the regulatory environment in which they operate, and their successful licensing within the state of Nevada made partnering with them an easy decision.

This is the not the first partnership between the two organizations. In May, Las Vegas Sands announced The Venetian's plans to become the first Nevada casino to provide mobile gaming based upon Cantor technology.

Lee Amaitis, President of Cantor Gaming said, "I am delighted to have reached another agreement with Las Vegas Sands organization, one of the most innovative hotel and resort casino operators in the world, to provide customers with an unparalleled online gaming experience. I am excited by the enormous potential of this partnership and look forward to developing this long-term relationship further".
