The Crown Sydney VIP Casino Finally Opens Doors
Crown Resorts is finally opening its VIP casino at its AUD 2.2 billion ($1.6 billion) integrated casino resort the Crown Sydney. The company faced delays in opening the casino due to investigations around it in multiple states in Australia.
The Crown Sydney VIP Casino finally opens on August 8th. The casino has two VIP rooms - the Crystal Room and the Mahogany Room. There are also 12 salons spread out on both levels. The CEO of the Crown has praised the quality and standard of furnishings and design.
Crown Sydney opened its non-gaming operations at its skyscraper in Barangaroo 18 months ago. The VIP casino could not open because Crown Resorts was deemed unsuitable to hold a casino license in New South Wales. New Sates Liquor & Gaming Authority found serious issues with the company’s money-laundering controls and ties to Asia. After a lot of work and a major corporate makeover, Crown has finally received a provisional license and is allowed to open its VIP Casino.
