Daily Asia Gaming eBrief: Crown Resorts maintains Melbourne casino license

Good Morning. All’s well that ends well. Such is the case for Crown Resorts, with authorities ruling that the group is suitable to maintain its Crown Melbourne casino license, despite its former AML breaches. Authorities now have more teeth when going after potential malfeasance, pushing the operator to stay on the straight and narrow. Meanwhile, ID verification technology is essential for the online gaming industry, says a top executive. And in the Philippines, PAGCOR remits some $81 million in dividends to the nation’s coffers, based on strong results.
