Updated August 03, Crown Casino must improve its responsible gambling efforts and compliance, Victoria's gaming regulator has declared, despite the operator being once again approved as a suitable licence holder.

The sixth review of Crown's licence found "failures of governance and risk management, contributing to compliance slippages". The casino was also criticised for a "lack of innovation" in its approach to responsible gambling and told it needed a "new or refreshed" strategy. Despite Crown denying allegations that anti-money laundering provisions were being ignored, the regulator recommended that those rules and practices be strengthened.

Crown was reprimanded again for allowing children to enter the casino in December , January , and August Victoria Police reported an average of 13 drug dealing offences per year in the casino during the five year review. While Crown often prides itself as a "world leader" in responsible gaming, the review found it had not continued to improve measures and programs for problem gamblers. The main way to help problem gamblers currently is to exclude themselves from the casino precinct, which Crown is then obliged to enforce.

But the review wants concerned family members to be able to apply for a loved one to be excluded, noting that Crown made positive comments about moving towards such a scheme. The report also said that Crown could do more to ensure self-excluded punters were not getting into the Casino and recommended better use of facial recognition technology to patrol who came in and out of the casino. Crown chairman John Alexander said the casino had made improvements to its responsible gaming program during the course of the review period and would continue to make improvements in the future.

Independent MP Andrew Wilkie has filed complaints with the regulator about Crown staff helping patrons access "continuous" play on poker machines. Mr Wilkie savaged the decision to continue the licence given misconduct allegations were still being investigated. Tim Costello from the Alliance for Gambling Reform hit out at the Victorian Government for releasing the page report late on a Friday afternoon, saying the actions against the casino should have been stronger.
