“Sands China Ltd does not engage in online gaming activities of any kind and vigorously pursues all reports of trademark infringement”
The Guangdong security unit is investigating a company being referred to as ‘Sands Online Gambling Corp.’ The largest operator of integrated resorts in Macau, Sands China, issued a statement distancing itself from an online gambling website which has been proven to be a fraud.
This company is operating under Sand’s name, namely ‘Sands Macao’ and is based out of Guangdong Province.
This website, offering online gaming is seen to be exploiting the company’s brands and the company’s property name and trademarks without asking for permission.
The company stated “Sands China Ltd wishes to clarify that the [online gambling] website using the name ‘Sands Macao’… is not in any way affiliated with the Sands Macao property [pictured] located on the Macau peninsula and owned by Sands China Ltd”
In a statement the company said “Sands China Ltd does not engage in online gaming activities of any kind and vigorously pursues all reports of trademark infringement.’
‘All websites purporting to offer online gaming using Sands China’s brands are fraudulent and should be reported to the relevant authorities immediately.”

Out of these cases, through 2020 the authorities have shut down 3,400 online gambling platforms and 2,800 illegal payment provider platforms.
