Crown Casino and other venues …


We’ve been trying to figure out why Crown Casino in Melbourne has been allowed to stay open when so many other venues across the state have been forced to close under the new restrictions.

According to Victorian premier Daniel Andrews, the reason is that the chief health officer has placed conditions on Crown and Crown is complying with that.

Crown has halved the number of poker machines in operation on the gaming floors but that’s still almost 1,400 machines, my colleague Ben Butler reports. 

Andrews said yesterday he would be “more than happy” to provide the advice from the chief health officer Dr Brett Sutton, but so far his office has not provided the conditions set by Sutton.
