The Star Passes Regulator’s Five-Yearly Review

The Star Casino in Sydney, the flagship casino of The Star Entertainment Group, has passed its five-yearly review of its operations by the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority.

The author of the review, Jonathan Horton, stated that no significant concerns were discovered across all aspects of the casino’s license. While some shortcomings were detected, these were not found to be significant or to result in major negative outcomes.

“The public interest, so far as I am capable of assessing it, favours the continuation of The Star’s license,” stated Mr Horton. “The Star Casino, apart from being, so far as I could ascertain, well run, appears to be resistant to criminal influence.”

“It meets, to some extent at least, demand from overseas visitors who wish to gamble and stay at, visit and dine in the facilities that the casino offers and is proposing to develop further. Those activities result in the payment to Government, as taxes and levies of some hundreds of millions of dollars.”

“It is likely that the state and its business people benefit from other expenditures beyond the casino of these overseas visitors.”

In response to claims that The Star had been under reporting incidents involving violence to Liquor and Gaming NSW or to the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority, the review found that this was not the case. However, it did put forward eleven recommendations for the casino to implement in order to improve its processes. These include improved communication between the casino security and police, the use of facial recognition technology and improvements in the process for recording and reporting incidents involving violence.

A spokesman for The Star, in an interview with The Australian, indicated that the casino would be working closely with regulators and authorities to implement the recommendations from the review.
