Crown Resort’s Burswood casino’s license under scanner


Crown Resorts has again entered into trouble for its Burswood casino’s license.

The Western Australia (WA) Government is going to hold an inquiry into Crown Resorts to determine whether the operator is suitable to hold the casino license to run the Burswood casino in Perth.

Just few days ago, the operator was found unsuitable to hold casino license for its Barangaroo casino in Sydney after an inquiry in New South Wales.

The allegations were of money laundering by the gamblers with links to organised crime.

WA’s Gaming and Wagering Commission (GWC) said the inquiry will have the powers of a royal commission.

As per Gambling Insider reports, Crown has since announced it will “fully co-operate in relation to this inquiry and will continue to engage with the WA Commission in relation to its reform agenda and any further remedial steps identified in response to the NSW ILGA Inquiry.”

The operator’s executive chairman Helen Coonan commented: “Crown is determined to play a constructive role with all of its regulators as it works to restore public and regulatory confidence in its operations.”
