Echo Entertainment is making plans to expand its brand in Brisbane with a casino resort. Whether the gambling operator decides to expand the Treasury Casino or build an entirely new property, the project is going to cost at least $1 billion.
Over the course of the past few years, Brisbane has grown into a busy city that attracts quite a few tourists every year. Many of these tourists are interested in visiting the local casino, and Echo Entertainment felt that now would be the ideal time to cater to these players’ tastes and needs. Officials have decided that the best course of action would be building a casino resort, complete with a hotel, entertainment centre and restaurants.
Local politicians and Echo Entertainment representatives decided that, while the city is growing, it is still not big enough to house two casinos. As such, Echo Entertainment will either close the Treasury and launch a new casino, or expand the Treasury’s existing property.
With a $1 billion price tag, the casino will certainly have some huge benefits for Brisbane. In addition to creating 7000 construction jobs and 6000 staff jobs, the casino resort is expected to bring in 8 million more visitors each year and significantly boost tourism revenue.
