Mike Baird To Amend Lockout Laws To Allow Casinos To Trade 27 Hours A Day


NSW Premier Mike Baird has today announced that the state’s controversial ‘lockout laws’ will be amended to allow NSW’s two casinos to trade 27 hours a day.

Speaking to The (un)Australian, the Premier said: “Look I’ve seen the protests and I’ve read the comments on social media and it is clear to me that the people of NSW are fed up and it’s time for change.

“So I will do what I can to make sure that the people can go to the casinos at all hours and if I need to do so I will add hours to the day in order to make it happen, you have my word that I will do all I can to keep gambling, I mean NSW, strong.”

A spokesperson for the new Barangaroo Casino also spoke to The (un)Australian about the Premier’s decision, saying: “It’s good to hear that the Premier is finally listening to reason and putting the interests of the casinos first for a change. All these small bars with their lobby groups and advertising budgets are almost driving us to the wall.

“A strong casino leads to a strong NSW now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to deliver a couple of bottles of Penfolds wine to Manly.”

The full review of the lockout laws findings will be released in August, until then keep gaming.
