The ground was broken yesterday on a AU$345 million redevelopment of the Jupiters Casino complex on Australia’s Gold Coast. Echo Entertainment Group are the company behind the large-scale redevelopment of the Queensland site, which will see a 17-storey, six-star hotel created to complement the gaming facilities already in place.


State Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Echo Entertainment Chairman John O’Neill turned the first sod in a symbolic ceremony, signalling the start of work on the tower which is expected to be complete in time for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The brand-new Jupiters Casino is expected to target overseas players, particularly high rollers from Asia, who will flock to the gaming tables before retiring to one of the 80 suites available, with each boasting private butlers, in-room theatres and glorious views of the South Pacific Coastline from expansive balconies. As well as the tower, the rest of the current complex will be refurbished and additional facilities for food, drink and entertainment will be created.

Palaszczuk insisted that the development would cement the Gold Coast’s status as an attractive prospect for international tourists, adding to the 800,000 holidaymakers who already visit every year. In addition, it is thought that the project will generate more than 1,700 jobs for the area.

Echo Entertainment also currently owns The Star hotel and casino complex in Sydney and Brisbane’s Treasury Casino and Hotel. It has also recently been named the preferred bidder to reinvigorate Brisbane’s Queens Wharf by building 2,000 flats and a brand new casino development.
