Reading Time: 1 minute

Crown Resorts will keep its license to run its Melbourne casino, the Crown Melbourne, as approved by the regulators in Victoria, Australia.

The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) had conducted an exhaustive review of its operations and suggested 20 operations recommendations. In the end, Crown Melbourne was deemed “suitable to hold its license” and to be complying with relevant legislation and agreements.

Crown Resorts responded to the news by accepting and addressing the regulators 20 recommendations.

Disciplinary matters during the five-year review period involving Crown Resorts included operational issues surrounding “Your Play,” the omission of junket operations information, and a three week trial of “blanking” palates.

The review period also saw Crown spend around AUS $447m ($330m) on upgrading and expanding the Melbourne Casino where it employs 13,000 members of staff.
