The casino owner SkyCity Entertainment has spent over two years undertaking serious renovations to its Adelaide property. The project included a 120 room hotel which is apart of its luxury branded Eos property, five restaurants, and a range of conferencing centers and halls. The expansion also saw two new bars being added to the casino, a luxurious VIP room, and over 100,000 square feet in gaming facilities added.
The Adelaide Casino Makeover Was A Long Time Coming
SkyCity Entertainment is an experienced casino operator with an extensive history in the New Zealand market. They currently run the properties in Auckland, Hamilton, and Queenstown. The casino group bought the Adelaide property in the early 2000s and switched the name, adding its SkyCity moniker. The Adelaide casino hasn’t been refurbished since the mid-1980s, and SkyCity Entertainment was always keen to throw some cash at the property and turn it into a luxury venue similar to their New Zealand-based casinos.
The city of Adelaide has been very pleased with the expansion project. The construction led to 1500 temporary jobs, which made a big impact on the local economy as the city was battling the pandemic. The casino estimates that once the casino is fully ramped up, they expect to employ an additional 400 permanent staff while also doing business with over 800 suppliers. The casino will have profound positive impacts on the Adelaide economy.
SkyCity is proud of its ability to successfully guide the Adelaide casino to success under its ownership since the 1980s. They are excited to usher in a new phase following the completion of the renovation.
The goal was to build a world-class tourist destination that people from all over the world would be excited to visit while also creating a space for local Adelaide citizens to enjoy whether they wanted to spend the night at a luxurious hotel, see an amazing performance, have an incredible dinner or try their luck on the gaming floor.
Last year the SkyCity Adelaide casino produced over $150 million in revenue, making it one of the most successful gaming properties in Australia. Industry analysts believe, thanks to the renovations, the new look Adelaine casino could expect to increase revenue by as much as 30%.
This revenue increase will be thanks to the luxury hotel, increased restaurant options, and more gambling services. This expected revenue increase would see the Adelaide casino be SkyCity Entertainment’s best performing property.
