The Victorian Commission for Gambling & Liquor Regulation has ordered Crown Resorts to pay a fine of $1m over its dealings with so-called ‘junket’ operators that have links to organised crime groups. It is the maximum penalty under Victoria’s Casino Control Act. However, Crown will not face an outright ban on future dealings with junket operators. Instead, it will not be permitted to resume partnerships with such operators at its Melbourne casino until the regulator is satisfied that its processes have been improved.

The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation recommended in 2018 that Crown Resorts review its anti-money-laundering controls and internal risks systems. The recommendations resulted from the VCGLR’s review of Crown’s Victorian casino licence, with the VCGLR advising Crown to get help from Austrac in the review of its anti-money-laundering controls. Crown has stated both reviews were completed over a month before allegations regarding its links with organised crime were raised in the media.
