After the news of Echo Entertainment winning the bid for the new casino in Queens Wharf, Brisbane, we are glad to announce that they will be installing 868 poker machines before opening. They have also been given the green light to include 2500 Pokie machines in the casino. However, they are not too sure if they will all fit in the facility as the original plans did not make space for that, they are however reviewing these plans to determine how they can make them all fit. What this means is that they won’t necessarily use all machines, but over the years they will look at expanding.
