Crown on Monday said the Gaming and Wagering Commission of Western Australia had given approval for “additional gaming product” at Crown Perth, conditional upon the development of Crown Towers Perth proceeding.

“The commission has approved an additional 500 electronic gaming machines (phased in over five years) and an additional 100 table games (phased in over four years),” Crown said in a statement to the Australia Securities Exchange.

It also said the commission would consider Crown Perth’s application for the remaining 30 table games when it considered variations to the licensed casino area to accommodate the new VIP gaming salons proposed as part of the development.

Crown Towers Perth would be developed at a total cost of $568 million, taking Crown’s investment in Perth to over $2.2 billion dollars, the company said.
