US gaming and hospitality firm Delaware North has announced that SKYCITY Darwin will be renamed Mindil Beach Casino & Resort after completing its AU$188 million (US$134 million) acquisition of the property this week.
Delaware North revealed early Thursday morning local time that re-branding of the Australian casino resort would include a new logo and color scheme to appear throughout and on uniforms, vehicles, casino collateral and other casino and resort marketing assets.
“We see Mindil Beach Casino & Resort as having the potential to be Darwin’s premier entertainment venue, which is what appealed to us most about pursuing the opportunity to add it to our portfolio of gaming and hospitality venues in the region,” said the company’s Managing Director, Gary Brown.
“Our team is exploring steps we can take to enhance what is already a terrific operation, such as infusing the international experience of Delaware North’s culinary team to enhance dining experiences throughout the resort, along with property-wide improvements to broaden appeal to new local, interstate and international guests.”
Delaware North will also explore opportunities to enhance the casino’s gaming offerings with new machines and gaming options.
