Tasmania has longed for a high profile economic development for years, and now it seems that they may have one. Recently, a bid was put in to place a high rollers casino in the area. This casino has caused a little bit of controversy throughout the region, and it will be interesting to watch this story develop over the next few years.
High Rollers Casino
MONA and Federal Group have been working on developing a plan for the casino for several years. Recently, the group decided to go forward with a play to establish a casino in the territory of Tasmania. The pair recently approached the authorities about their plan to establish a high rollers' casino.
The government of Tasmania, as well as Mona and Federal Group, are currently working on etching out the details of the future agreement. These negotiations are extremely secretive and many key tourism figures are not even aware of the possibility of these negotiations. It is likely that the details of this agreement will remain secret throughout the negotiation.
Federal Group has a reputation as being one of the best casino operators in the country, and they currently operate throughout Tasmania. It appears that MONA only wants to operate a boutique casino, but it seems that the deal may allow the casino to grow. The Tasmanian government would have to change some laws in order to allow MONA to operate in the area, and it seems likely that the government will do that.
The plan is to build a casino that would only allow high rollers to participate. These restrictions would bar most Tasmanians from ever entering the premises. This is a major point of contention with many in the Tasmania area. Several citizens feel like there would be no benefit to them from building the casino.
While people may not believe that it is in their best interest to build the casino, many tourism experts feel that this project will bring in extremely wealthy people from across the globe. In particular, it is possible that tourists from the United States and Europe will head over to Tasmania, and spend a great deal of money in the area.
While this latest casino deal is surrounded with controversy it does seem that the deal will eventually get passed. The deal will probably be really good for tourism in the area. As Tasmania continues to boom, the area is sure to see more deals like this soon.
