Australia.- The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) investigation on the casino company Crown Resorts has finally ended with a positive result for the company, which will maintain its profitable licence in Australia for its Crown Melbourne venue. The confirmation was made by official sources that said the licence was approved again after a review by regulators in Victoria, Australia.

During the last few weeks, the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation has carried out the sixth review on the Crown Melbourne operations, resulting in the maintenance of the licence by the local gaming company. However, the report led to 20 operations recommendations by the Australian gaming authority.

As the report reads, the Crown Melbourne casino and touristic centre was deemed “suitable to hold its licence” and “to be complying with relevant legislation and agreements.” Meanwhile, representatives of Crown Resorts confirmed to the local press that they accept and will address the regulator’s 20 recommendations.

The new investigation was triggered after independent MP Andrew Wilkie revealed “picks” he said were given to a former problem gambler that allowed her to play on several machines at the same time. The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation interviewed the high-roller and confirmed it will meet with Mr Wilkie to look at the evidence he presented.
