This Sands Casino Resort is one of just five stand-alone casinos that was awarded a slots license by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on December 20, 2006 and opened in this Lehigh Valley town, in the region of eastern Pennsylvania in 2009, a delay from the original opening date which was supposed to be almost a year previously. After it finally opened its doors on the 22nd of May 2009, the casino had to wait until the following winter before it managed to obtain a license for table games which allowed it to expand its existing operation to include firm favorites like poker, blackjack and craps. In addition, the casino is home to over 3,000 slot machines, 180 table games and several electronic table games so if you are feeling lucky and want to take a gamble then you will find plenty of choice.
The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem is part of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation which owns a number of properties however this is now the only casino of the three that it owns in the United States to carry the Sands brand in its name, since the original Las Vegas Sands was demolished in 1996. This was replaced with The Venetian which was built on the same spot and opened its doors to the public in May 1999 while the Sands Atlantic City was also sold to new owners in 2006 and subsequently demolished too.
