Lasseters Online Casino Turnover Hits $8.9 Million

Australia's first regulated online casino Lasseters Online, has witnessed a successful entry into the online gambling arena with a average monthly turnover growth of 72 per cent.

After its first six months of operation, company revenues reached AUS$13.5 million and player registration grew by a monthly average of 94 percent to reach 12,600.

Lasseters Casino chief executive Peter Bridge said the results have been spurred by enormous demand from international markets, which account for 82 per cent of players. The revenue generated online already exceeds the returns from the table games at the company's Alice Springs Casino, Mr Bridge said.

The AUS$5 million site has players registered from 154 countries and Lasseters Online is anticipated to contribute 37 per cent of the company's total revenue this financial year. An enormous AUS$3 million upgrade of the site is planned for the next six months.
