Skycity: Incorrect Statement Issued By Lobby Group

Skycity Responds To Incorrect Statement Issued By Lobby Group

SKYCITY has called a press release issued today by an anti-gambling lobby group “misleading”. SKYCITY’s Manager Media Relations, Delwyn Lewer, said the statement, issued by GamblingWatch, is speculative and factually incorrect.

“The statement issued today is incorrect and misleading. SKYCITY’s submission refers to a procedural matter with respect to the development of the regulations. It is simply another step in the consultation process that the department has been engaged in with interested parties for well over a year,” said Ms Lewer.

“We share the objectives of GamblingWatch and the Government with regard to the reduction of harm associated with gambling. SKYCITY has always taken a responsible approach to problem gambling management and is keen to ensure consultation between Government and the industry continues,” said Ms Lewer.
