Globally, the casino industry is currently worth over $227 billion U.S. dollars. With the rise of online gambling, some brick-and-mortar companies are expanding their reach to online sports betting and gaming apps. Most of the top casino companies are headquartered in the U.S., many of them in the world-famous gambling destination of Las Vegas. However, the special administrative region of Macau in southern China has recently been giving the Vegas Strip a run for its money, surpassing it in gross gambling revenue. One company, Las Vegas Sands, has sold its Las Vegas property to focus exclusively on the Asian market.
