Cotai Casinos Breaking Ground on Expansion Plans

The first phase of building on Cotai in Macau is nearly complete, and we're entering a period of constant gaming supply in the next three years. Today, crews are already working on Phase Two of Cotai's expansion, and some new entrants are eagerly entering this hot market. Wynn Resorts (Nasdaq: WYNN  ) is building its first Cotai resort, and MGM Resorts (NYSE: MGM  ) is hoping to get going soon. They'll join Las Vegas Sands (NYSE: LVS  ) and Melco Crown (Nasdaq: MPEL  ) , which have a presence but are also eyeing expansions.

Las Vegas Sands is currently the dominant player on Cotai, but new competitors are quickly entering the market. The company is now looking to spread its empire further, but will it be able to replicate its prior successes? Learn about all this and other opportunities, and the risks they pose, in our brand-new premium report on Las Vegas Sands.

    Travis, could you define quickly? There won't be any significant players opening their doors on Cotai for close to 3 more years.

    IMO, you shout WYNN while whispering LVS. You shout WYNN is starting to build on Cotai and then whispers LVS is the dominant player there, forgetting the earliest WYNN will be positively effected by Cotai is 3 years from now. You shout WYNN will have 500 tables when completed and do not mention LVS is getting 200 more tables in Jan and will get even more over the next 3 years as Macau approves 3% table growth per year.

    LVS will be adding to its corporate treasure while WYNN is still building and consuming corporate treasure for their build.

    Thanks for the whispers and letting me shout that LVS will soon have 20% of all tables in Macau and the vast majority of hotel rooms and shopping and has still has Lot 3 to build more of the same on.
