Crown Resort, the most important operator of land-based casinos in Australia, will have to endure the investigation of the Royal Commission in Western Australia for a few more months as the deadline was moved forward to March 2022.
The commissioners made a request for more time to carry out their investigations, with the initial deadline being set on November 14 this year. The government approved the request and now the deadline is set for 4 March 2022.
The commission will examine the company’s suitability as a licensee to operate its Perth venue in the state. Crown Resorts is undergoing a similar investigation in Victoria, and the Royal Commission in that state also asked for its deadline to be moved from August 1 this year to October 15.
The government of Western Australia announced that it has received the Perth Casino Royal Commission interim report. The document will be analysed by the government experts and then it will be forwarded to the Western Australian parliament in August.
The investigation in Western Australia started in March 2021. In this state, Crown Resorts operates Crown Perth, a huge resort which features three hotels, a casino, a convention centre with meeting rooms, along with 32 restaurants and bars. The casino offers around 2,500 coin-operated machines and over 300 gaming tables.
