Las Vegas Sands has launched a multi-million dollar advertising campaign in an effort to convince lawmakers to legalise casinos in Texas.

The group has a $6.2 billion group cash pile to spend on expansion after having sold its Las Vegas properties in March. It has said its main focus is on Asia, where it operates IRs in Macau and Singapore.
