Justice shines on Aristocrat and Crowns Casino as false accusations take a turn around. Celebrating the clearance on the poker machine case of “Crown casino” and “Aristocrat”- the machine supplier, Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) today emphasised the recent regulations in Australia.
GTA embraced Justice Mortimer’s ruling in favour of Aristocrat and Crown in the Federal Court, which ensured the end of the campaign of myth and rumours that prevailed against the industry.
The GTA Chief Executive, Ross Ferrar said: “This case has failed on all counts. The judgement clears the air after a vexatious campaign waged against the industry based on speculation and claims that have failed to withstand legal scrutiny. Throughout this process, the industry has faced incredible scrutiny, which our members welcomed, and we are pleased that Justice Mortimer has found that the action brought has failed on all counts.”
In particular, the Association notes Her Honour’s comments regarding Aristocrat and Crown’s compliance with “a detailed and comprehensive regulatory regime” which was an important factor in her conclusion. “Justice Mortimer’s ruling is further evidence that Australian poker machines are robustly regulated and can be enjoyed with confidence.”
Mr Ferrar then added: “This is an important outcome for the gaming industry and the countless Australians who will continue to enjoy poker machines with the full knowledge they are playing games that adhere to world-class standards.”
