Since the announcement of a new casino project to take off in Brisbane, people have been wondering who will win the rights to build the new casino resort. Currently Echo Entertainment is taking the spotlight to win building rights, but Crown Casino is also in the running.
On the 14 July 2015 we will hear the results on who will win the rights. Most people are betting on Echo Entertainment to take the win as they would need the opportunity more than Crown Casino would, but nothing is certain as Crown Casino has also increased there offering to help win the bid.
Echo Entertainment has stated that they are willing to move their 1600 poker machines to the new site if they win. Crown Casino has stated if they win they will attempt to buy back as many poker machines from local pub and restaurants to keep numbers down; this might be an issue as licences require a minimum of 1500 machines for a second licence.
Echo Entertainment has the only casino licence in the city and this is why they could really be a potential for the winning! Let’s wait and see who will win the bid!
