The Star Entertainment Group has been granted a six-month extension by the Queensland government to demonstrate its fitness to operate its Brisbane and Gold Coast casinos.

This follows a government fine of AUD100m ($66m) fine last December, with a mandate to rectify its operations.

Facing a December 1st 2023 deadline, the Group now has until May 31st 2024 to prove its capability to manage its existing Gold Coast Casino and the new Queen’s Wharf development. Failure to do so could lead to a 90-day suspension of its Queensland gaming license.

Robbie Cooke, CEO & Managing Director, was satisfied with the approval of their Queensland remediation plan, saying: “It is an important step on our path to returning to suitability in Queensland and will track and hold us accountable throughout the multi-year program we are committed to delivering.”
