The casino will resume operations today with additional measures to maintain social distancing within the venue.
Australia.- SkyCity’s hotel and casino in South Australia, Adelaide Casino, is opening its doors again today (Monday June 29) as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted throughout the country.
The South Australia government was one of the first state governments in the country to open its borders.
This first stage of reopening of Adelaide Casino will be for its Premier Rewards members only.
The casino said: “Only Premier Rewards members may enter SkyCity Adelaide Casino when we first re-open. This will ensure we have a central register of who is on-site and when, so we can support with contact tracing if required.”
Gaming machines will start at 9am and table games will open at midday. Level one tables, including poker tables, will not open at the moment as the level is being refurbished for a later expansion.
As preventive measures against Covid-19, customers will be asked to stay 1.5 metres away from each other, and table games will cater for up to three players only. There will be no back-betting. Some gaming machines have been turned off to enable social distancing between players.
The casino said: “The Chandelier and Grandstand Bars will initially only be open to service players. We will open these as bar outlets later in July.”
The Sean’s Kitchen restaurant will operate from 10am to 10pm every day as a gaming floor eatery, and the beverage cart will operate on the main gaming floor.
The casino expects to be able to open for non-Premium Reward visitors from mid-July, as long as they register with photo identification.
