Australia.- The New South Wales Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority (ILGA) has said it will make public its report on Crown’s suitability to keep its Barangaroo casino licence tomorrow (Tuesday.)

Former Supreme Court judge Patricia Bergin’s 800-page report could decide the fate of Crown’s bid to open its US$2.2bn casino following the ILGA’s 18-month investigation into the company.

The report will include a recommendation on whether Crown is fit to keep its licence for the casino, although the recommendation may not necessarily be accepted and implemented by the regulator, which will meet later this month to consider the report.

Commissioner Bergin’s report will be tabled in the state -parliament on Tuesday afternoon.

Crown has already opened the hotel, restaurants and bar at the new tower. It had hoped to open the gaming floors in December but authorities blocked the launch after the group admitted various money laundering failings at its Melbourne and Perth casinos.
