LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas Sands Corp. says its second-quarter profit tumbled by 35 percent as the casino operator’s table game winnings fell at home and in Asia.

The company says that net income fell to $240.6 million, or 29 cents per share, from $367.6 million, or 45 cents per share, a year earlier.

Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson says the results didn’t meet his expectations because of the lower take from table games, higher legal expenses and other factors.
