Aussie regulator junks pokies tampering claims vs Crown Resorts

Australian-listed casino operator Crown Resorts Ltd. may have dodged a fatal bullet during the review of its operating license after the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) brushed aside allegations that the casino tampered its poker machines.

An infuriated Australian MP Andrew Wilkie has accused the VCGLR of selling out to Crown after it failed to consider the testimonies of two whistleblowers on the poker tampering issue due to small technicalities, according to the Sydney Morning Herald report.

Wilkie claimed that the state regulator threw out the statement of his first whistleblower because the man wished to remain anonymous, while the other whistleblower felt her testimony wouldn’t matter after she was told that the VCGLR investigator wasn’t interested in the tampering issue.

The Australian MP reminded VCGLR chair Ross Kennedy that the state regulator has protocols that allowed anonymous complaints.
