New Zealand Casino Recovers from Smoking Ban

Last year, a smoking ban was imposed on Darwin’s SkyCity Casino. After profits took a massive dive, the gambling venue is beginning to recover, as patrons come crawling back to the casino.

SkyCity issued a statement, indicating that profits are on the rise again, despite a challenging time after the introduction of the smoking ban. The company believes that Darwin SkyCity has a great deal of potential and, despite the ban, will continue to provide a significant source of revenue to the company.

The casino has also seen trying times due to a waning tourism economy. The dry season and the rising dollar have encouraged locals to seek out vacation spots overseas, so the local gambling industry has seen a difficult period of time.

SkyCity Darwin will be undergoing extensive work to help rejuvenate the property. The five-star Lagoon Resort is currently under construction, which will include a spa, a restaurant and a heated lagoon. There will also be two VIP villas and gaming pavilions.

The huge renovations that were recently completed on SkyCity Auckland’s property helped the company boost its profits. The operator hopes that the new addition to SkyCity Darwin will have the same effect, continuing to improve the casino’s revenue after the results of the smoking ban.
