Las Vegas Sands Profits Fall $2 Billion in 2020 • This Week in Gambling

Shortly after the passing of Sheldon Adelson, we now learn that Las Vegas Sands profits fell nearly $2.2 billion last year, thanks in large part to the pandemic and diminishing tourism to Nevada.

Room revenue fell almost 73% while food and beverage revenue was down 69%. Earnings from their conventions and retail shops fell 67%.

Company revenue fell over 70% last year to just $3.6 billion, which the company said was a direct result of the Novel Coronavirus. Macau profits were the worst hit, where restrictions on travel held the Sands in check for most of the year and resulted in a loss of over 80%.

The Venetian Macau brought in $738 million, but that was still a significant loss of nearly 82% from the previous year. Revenue from the Londoner Macau brought in $297 million, bey that was also a massive loss of over 85%.
