SkyCity Entertainment, a leading name in the casino business, faces the possibility of significant penalties due to legal proceedings arising from alleged breaches at its Adelaide branch.
Proactively preparing for the potential fallout, SkyCity has earmarked approximately $49 million (A$45m) for potential penalty expenses and related legal costs. Additionally, the valuation of the Adelaide casino license has been reduced by about $49.7m (A$45.6m).
SkyCity expressed that while a penalty might be on the horizon for their Adelaide casino, the exact figure remains undisclosed by AUSTRAC. With the legal procedures still unfolding, significant uncertainties mark the situation. Both AUSTRAC and SkyCity Adelaide are actively working on establishing facts and potentially acknowledging certain admissions.
