New Push for Boutique Gaming Licenses for Offshore Islands

Central Queensland tourism group, Tower Holdings, is pushing the government to grant a boutique gaming license for their development. The company has been approved to build a resort on Great Keppel Island, an offshore island of the Great Barrier Reef, but wants to include a casino.

The previous LNP government would not grant a license and the current Palaszczuk government has said that there are no new licenses available. The State Opposition Leader Lawrence Springborg has promised his backing for the project and the current LNP government has created a new policy for an additional category of offshore boutique casino licenses to be established.

However, Mary Carroll from Capricorn Enterprises said that the developer cannot wait another two years for the next state election.

“We’ve worked with multiple different premiers and prime ministers on a raft of different issues for this destination,” stated Ms. Carroll.

“So our position hasn’t changed, that we believe the granting of a boutique gaming license to offshore islands of the Great Barrier Reef could expedite investment and that would be a great thing.”

“He [the developer] can’t wait for… another two years until another state election, so we really are seeking now bipartisan support for this legislative change.”

“In all of our views it would cost the government nothing.”

According to Springborg, prior to the last election, a category for limited boutique offshore casino licenses did not exist. Now that it does, they could very quickly begin the process for a limited casino on Great Keppel Island if they win the next election.

“The policy commitment of the LNP is that does now exist and we will be taking to the next election and implementing in policy, if we’re privileged to win the next election, a program of offshore limited boutique casino licenses,” he said.
