Crown Resorts will shut down every second poker machine and electronic gaming table at its Melbourne casino complex. This follows the decision by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews to declare a state of emergency, in order to try and curtail the spread of the coronavirus. The shutting of poker machines and electronic gaming tables is one of a number of social distancing measures that Crown will adopt at its Melbourne complex, with its social distancing policy being approved by the Victorian Chief Health Officer. Star Entertainment is shutting down half of the poker machines and electronic gaming tables at its Pyrmont casino in Sydney.
