While the global economy is showing signs of recovery, there are still many individuals in dire need of employment. James Packers’ plans for a casino expansion will certainly benefit those job seekers, as it will create 500 new jobs in Perth once the expansion is finished and 700 jobs during the construction.
The plans for the Burswood expansion include the addition of 120 table games and 500 new poker machines, developing the casino’s gaming floor even further. It will also see the construction of a new luxury casino that aims to attract VIP players and business travellers from around the world.
“The new hotel will put Perth firmly back on the map for leisure travellers seeking exclusive, resort-style experiences,” Crown Casinos said in a recent statement.
The expansion of the casino will also bring in more tourism dollars, which will help to improve the overall economy. Gambling is one of the biggest providers of tax dollars, so the local economy will see a great deal of improvement thanks to the job creation and the tourism boost that the Burswood Casino expansion will provide.
