It's no secret that James Packer's proposals for a Crown casino in Barangaroo have been under review recently, with Deloitte being asked to assess the validity of claims Crown Limited made in terms of the economic benefits a gambling resort would bring to the state.
Crown outlined that its proposed complex would boost the New South Wales (NSW) economy by $440 million, with a VIP-only casino able to deliver a further $114 million that would be accrued through gaming tax.
But whatever Deloitte concluded is set to remain a secret, with the state's authorities confirming that its findings will not be published as the report contains 'sensitive information'.
The proposals have been surrounded by controversy in recent months, with the Star casino holding the main gambling licence in NSW and questions over the legality of Crown's proposed resort.
Whatever happens, it's unlikely that Packer will give up on his attempts to get the go-ahead for a Barangaroo casino any time soon.
