Western Oz to look into Crown

Western Oz usually wouldn’t be caught dead following the eastern states, but after the NSW gaming regulator’s scathing review of Crown Resorts, the Western Australian Government has announced an inquiry of its own. It’s interesting timing with WA’s head regulator standing aside last week over conflict of interest concerns after it was revealed he went fishing with senior Crown employees.

As for Victoria, it’s fast-forwarded a regular review of Crown’s casino licence by 2 years. #SquizShortcut on all this is out this morning…
