SA Jockey Club Awaiting Ruling on Gaming Venue Development

The South Australian Jockey Club is awaiting a ruling by the Liquor and Gambling Commission regarding its bid for a $10 million restaurant and gambling venue at St Clair. The club wants to build the venue to replace its facilities at the Cheltenham Racecourse.

Under a 2010 law, before the plans can go ahead, the club must demonstrate to the Liquor and Gambling Commission that the poker machines in the venue will not have detrimental social impacts on the community.

The hearing has been running for two weeks and a ruling is not expected to be made by the liquor licensing commissioner until earlier next year.

The case has important implications for other pokies venues in the state as it is the first of its kind under the new laws.

According to Brenton Wilkinson, CEO of the club, “It was an existing venue with 40 gaming entitlements in it and we’re looking to rebuild the facility with the same number of machines.”

“It’s not an application for us to put a brand new business into a brand new environment; it is really a relocation of our existing business.”

In addition, the project would be expected to create dozens of jobs for locals in the area.

Opposition to the plan exists and Mark Henley from Uniting Communities has said that they would like to see an application of $1 per spin bet limits and that this venue would be ideal to implement the changes with. Henley continued that they would like to see this case lead to reforms in the industry.
