SkyCity Fined For Scandal

Earlier this year, SkyCity was involved in a scandal that saw its managing Director Sid Vaikunta let go. Months later, the casino operator is still feeling the effects of the scandal, as it has recently been fined over $100 000 for failing to inform the local gaming authority.

At the beginning of the year, Sid Vaikunta was accused of sexually harassing his employees. He was suspended and threatened with the loss of his job. In February, he was fired. In the months leading up to the suspension and sacking, the casino operator failed to inform the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority.

According to the authority, this was a breach of the Casino Control Act. Whenever a casino executive is accused of wrong doing the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority must be notified so that it can conduct an investigation. Sky City’s actions interfered with the process.

The casino operator has apologized for the transgression, stating that it was unaware it had acted unlawfully. Moving forward, SkyCity will maintain transparency and an open relationship with the local gaming authority.
