Las Vegas Sands debuted a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign Thursday in a bid to bring casinos to Texas, according to a new report.
The ads, according to an announcement first shared with The Texas Tribune, claim that Texas loses out on billions of dollars in tourism and gambling each year to casinos in neighboring states such as Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

The ads debuted at a time when the Texas legislature is considering bills that would legalize casino gambling in Texas. One bill, which is reportedly backed by Las Vegas Sands, would allow four resorts to open in major metro areas within the state.
According to the Tribune, the company has doled out millions for lobbyists to push this bill through both chambers.
Another bill, introduced Wednesday, would legalize sportsbooks.
