SkyCity casino in Auckland has seen a massive increase in trade from high rollers visiting from China.

The Chinese are known for their interest in gambling, and SkyCity hopes to keep attracting main land China punters.

Already there has been an agreement reached with Air New Zealand for priority access to ticketing.  The casino is also working with NZ immigration to fast-track known high rollers from China.

Many casinos worldwide have seen a decrease in business due to the ever increasing popularity of online gambling, which is easy to access, even if legislation does not allow online casinos to operate within its shores, as is the case here in New Zealand.  However, there is nothing to stop people playing overseas based online gambling operations.

So, the interest of high rollers from China is an important development for any land-based casino, and SkyCity will hope to continue to take advantage of the situation.
