New Zealand.- Skycity Entertainment Group will close its Adelaide casino for a second time due to a new spike in the number of Covid-19 cases in the city.

The casino and the entertainment areas in the venue will be closed.

The decision comes after the South Australia Government said it would reinstate restrictions in light of a new cluster of Covid-19 cases. Stay at home measures will be enforced statewide until November 24.

The operator has also delayed the inauguration of its US$330m (US$241.7m) expansion of Skycity Adelaide, which has been slated for late November.

Skycity’s properties in Auckland, Hamilton and Queenstown remain open.

Casinos in New Zealand also went into lockdown from early September to early October after a new cluster of Covid-19 cases were discovered in Auckland. The lockdown cost the operator about US$14m. 

The group expects to return to normal levels in 2022.
