SKYCITY Entertainment Group Chief Executive Nigel Morrison says the company remains committed to its $250 million redevelopment project for the Adelaide Casino. Mr Morrison says media speculation that SKYCITY is about to scrap plans for its redevelopment of the Adelaide Casino is unfounded and wrong.

“SKYCITY Entertainment Group has publically stated all along that we are excited by the opportunity to invest in Adelaide’s Casino and that we very much want to be a part of the transformation of the Riverbank Precinct. Our position has not changed since we announced our plans last year,” said Mr Morrison.

Mr Morrison said SKYCITY and Adelaide Casino management continue to work closely with the State Government on a range of necessary approvals it would require before undertaking this significant investment.

“Naturally we want a level playing field from a regulatory perspective so Adelaide can compete with casinos in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and we are working well with the Government on this.

“SKYCITY and the Adelaide Casino are ready and willing to press the button on the redevelopment project as soon as these necessary approvals have been progressed.

“This is an exciting project and one that belongs to South Australians – not just from an economic perspective but also as part of the regeneration of Adelaide’s city centre and Riverbank area and SKYCITY is keen to play a part in that,” said Mr Morrison.
