14/08/13 - SkyCity Gains From High Rollers as Gambling Scam Leaves Debt

Sky City Entertainment Group Ltd., New Zealand’s largest casino owner, said that a costly scam by some gamblers from Asia won’t deter it from wooing foreign high rollers to its Auckland venue.


Earnings from international business at Auckland rose to NZ$10.5 million ($8.4 million) in the year ended June 30 from NZ$5.2 million a year earlier, even after a NZ$2.7 million provision for the dishonored debts, the company said in a statement. The shares fell as group net income dropped 8.1 percent to NZ$127.3 million, missing analysts’ estimates.


SkyCity has built its “Horizon” gaming rooms and suites in Auckland to attract wealthy gamblers, with revenue from that business more than tripling to NZ$4.1 billion in the year through June from NZ$1.2 billion in 2009-10. About 20 people who played in Auckland for several days in the first half left without honoring their debts, the company said without providing further detail.


“We would regard this as a bit of a scam, not legal gaming activity,” Chief Executive Officer Nigel Morrison said at a results presentation today. “These guys that have done this have also done it at other properties.”



Win Rate


Auckland’s international business, which operates on a theoretical win rate of 1.35 percent, achieved 1.48 percent in the latest year, SkyCity said.
