Brisbane Casino to Offer Unlimited Gaming Tables

It has been revealed that operators of the new $3 billion Queens Wharf Casino Resort in Brisbane will be able to offer unlimited gaming tables and electronic table games when they open by 2022.

Once it opens, the casino will obtain the license from the Treasury Casino for a period of 99 years which it will operate under the Star Entertainment brand. Under its license, The Star is able to operate an unlimited number of table games, either traditional table games or electronic games, as long as regulatory approval have been received.

Anti-gambling campaigners, such as South Australian Senator Nick Xenophon, have criticised the ability for the casino to offer unlimited electronic gaming tables, comparing the machines to poker machines and questioning the impact it will have on gambling addiction.

However, a spokesperson for The Star told The Australian that all Queensland casinos were able to offer an unlimited number of machines.

“The electronic versions are significantly different to pokies in that they are multi-terminal and allow for more than one player to participate in traditional table games, roulette as an example, simultaneously,” said the spokesperson.

A spokesperson for Acting Attorney General Anthony Lynham supported this, saying that the license was consistent with current practice in Queensland.

The site for the casino resort will be transferred to the international joint venture Destination Brisbane Consortium later this month when preliminary construction will begin. The exclusive license they were granted in October will cover a 60km radius around Brisbane once the development has been completed.

The existing Treasury Casino will operate in the new integrated casino resort, while the current Treasury building will become high-end shops and The Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Queensland government is expecting to collect a minimum of $800 million in gaming taxes within its first decade of operation.
