Due to financial and economic difficulties that are hurting the gaming industry, Crown Sydney has announced a significant reduction in its casino’s operation hours, which will take effect on November 29.
The casino’s new hours are as follows: Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Friday, until 4 a.m.; and Saturday, 2 p.m. to 4 a.m. The casino is open on Sundays from 2 p.m. until 2 a.m. This action is a result of Crown Sydney’s thorough review of its VIP casino operations and is in accordance with business requirements.
CEO of Crown Sydney Mark McWhinnie said that the extended hours are a component of a bigger strategy to address issues facing the sector. The company plans to support the 180 affected employees and collaborate with their union to determine their next course of action. Crown Sydney is dedicated to the ongoing reform and remediation program and aims to reassign as many affected workers as possible to other positions within the organization.
Similar remarks were made by Crown in August, when it announced a voluntary layoff program to eliminate up to 95 employee positions due to macroeconomic concerns and temporarily closed one of its two VIP gaming floors. The most recent shift in working hours demonstrates the dynamic nature of the sector and Crown’s ability to adapt to the needs of the outside world. Reiterating its commitment to providing clients with an unparalleled experience, the company plans to resume 24-hour casino operations over two floors as soon as business demand increases.
