Crown Resorts’ casino at its new Barangaroo property in Sydney is likely to be open on a conditional basis within weeks, the New South Wales regulator said.

The Australian operator opened the new resort in December 2020, but was unable to open the gaming floors after being found to be unsuitable to hold a licence in the state following revelations of money laundering and widespread corporate governance lapses in its casinos.

“It is anticipated that the Authority may permit Crown to commence gaming on a conditional basis in the next few weeks,” a spokesperson for the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority was cited as saying by local media.

“While the Authority has not changed its assessment that Crown is unsuitable to hold a restricted gaming licence until it has addressed the significant issues arising from the Bergin Inquiry, commencement of gaming on a conditional basis will contribute to assisting the Authority to assess Crown’s progress towards suitability.

“At this time, it is not possible to advise when a final determination regarding suitability will be made.”
