Continuing its scrutiny of Australia major casino operators, the Sydney Morning Herald/Age has this morning revealed that Star Casino has been “enabling suspected money laundering, organised crime, large-scale fraud and foreign interference within its Australian casinos for years”. With casinos in Sydney, Brissie and the Gold Coast, the report says that since 2014, Star encouraged high-roller gamblers with criminal links to frequent its venues. A spokesperson for Star said it was subject to “thorough and ongoing regulatory oversight” and it’s “committed to transparent engagement with regulators”. The investigation, which will continue to report this week, says the findings are in contrast to the ‘clean’ image Star has portrayed in the wake of inquiries into misconduct at Crown.
