Jupiters Casino Celebrates 30 Years

Queensland’s first casino, Jupiters, is celebrating thirty years since it opened for business. Operated by Star Entertainment Group Queensland, the casino has expanded significantly over the years and is about to undergo a $345 million upgrade.

The Conrad Jupiters Casino and Resort was opened in November 1985 following construction that cost $186 million. The casino opened with 1,400 staff, 40 of whom are still currently employed by the casino. There were no poker machines at the casino when it opened due to strict government laws; however the casino set aside space in case those laws were softened.

Currently, the casino has more than 1,600 gaming machines and a range of table games including roulette, poker, blackjack, baccarat, craps, sic bo and more. The complex includes a 594-room hotel, seven restaurants, eight bars, a theatre, a gym, a spa, a conference facility and a ballroom.

“Thirty years ago it was very much about the casino, the table gaming offering and then the machine offering that came afterwards,” commented Geoff Hogg, managing director of Star Entertainment Group Queensland.

“If you look at an area like Vegas, originally it was all about gaming. Today they make more money out of hotels, bars, restaurants and live entertainment than they do casinos. It’s very much the same here in Australia.”

Jupiters is now undergoing a $345 million redevelopment to upgrade the complex. The work began in August 2014 with a new poolside experience. The upgrade will include the building of a new hotel tower with six-star suites, premier restaurants and a VIP gaming area. Within the existing building, the gaming floor will be refurbished, the hotel rooms upgraded and two new restaurants added. The upgrade is expected to be completed in time for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
