|Casino operator Sky City Ltd. is interested in buying Australian online and telephone betting company Centrebet. A Sky City made no direct comment but said, 'We keep a close eye on a market we're involved in and consider whatever opportunities are out there.' The company is being sold by Jupiters Ltd., who are currently planning to merge with Australia’s other leisure giant, Tabcorp. |
Sky City is best known for owning the Sky City Complex in Auckland, NZ, describing itself as the largest entertainment complex in the region. Sky City’s owners claimed to have suffered initially from the damper on Asian tourism caused by the SARS outbreak, but rebounded quickly due to their diverse array of leisure activities on offer.
