The practice of responsible gambling is something all casinos should seek to adhere to, both in the online casino industry, and the landbased. SkyCity Adelaide is currently facing an independent review. This comes in close succession to the investigation of SkyCity Auckland. The casino is under question for non-compliance with various regulations. Read on for more.
SkyCity Adelaide is under review by the South Australian Liquor and Gambling regulator. The group will review whether the establishment is worthy of holding a casino license. However, the Adelaide casino has been under scrutinty for the past year. Austrac, the Australian federal financial regulator, has been looking into the casino for severe non-compliance with the law.
However, SkyCity isn't the only casino chain in question. The group has also been facing problems with other major casino groups over the past few years.
According to Dini Soulio, Liquor and Gambling Commissioner,
"A number of the matters raised to date extend beyond any one organisation and point instead to broader systemic issues within the casino industry."
The biggest breaches practiced by casino groups include:
Recently, Star Entertainment Group has been under scrutiny for failure to meet regulatory practices at its New South Wales premise. In a similar fashion, Crown Resorts has just as many shortcomings. According to Soulio,
"Inquiries to date have highlighted significant failings on the part of Crown Resorts as operators of Crown Casinos"
South Australian authorities have launched an independent inquiry into SkyCity's Adelaide casino, following similar investigations on their properties in other states.
The inquiry will be headed by retired supreme court judge, Brian Martin AO WC. SkyCity has stated its willingness to cooperate. The group will gladly assist with the provision of any required information for the inquiry.
The final review of the inquiry is set to be released 1 February, 2023.
