The Crown’s jewel is back in place


Crown Resorts received the tick of approval yesterday to keep operating its $2.2 billion casino at Barangaroo in Sydney – which you might remember was the focus of an inquiry that found the company guilty of money laundering and other illegal activities… It also found Crown wasn’t “suitable” to hold a gaming licence for the venue, but the company – promising to be on its best behaviour – negotiated a path to reclaim its licence. Yesterday, NSW Independent Casino Commission Chief Commissioner Philip Crawford said Crown (and yes, that’s a lot of Cs…) had held up its end of the deal and proven itself “a vastly different business to the one which was examined in the Bergin inquiry”. Crown’s boss Mark McWhinnie was happy to hear that – he reckons the venue is now “the safest place to gamble” in NSW.
