Australia: Crown Resorts given approval to open Sydney Barangaroo casino

The Guardian writes

Green light comes after a string of controversies over money laundering, and 18 months after Barangaroo opened its bars and restaurants

Gaming group Crown Resorts has been given the green light to finally open the casino in its luxury skyscraper overlooking Sydney Harbour.

But the approval by the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority for the gaming operations inside Crown Sydney’s Barangaroo complex is conditional for between 18 months and two years.

“Crown has rebuilt its gaming model from the ground up, which has meant deep structural change around governance, anti-money laundering measures and corporate culture,” regulator chair Philip Crawford said on Wednesday.

“After more than one year’s work with Crown, the authority is pleased to have reached a stage where Crown can open its casino operations on a conditional basis.”
