Dunedin Casino’s licence has been suspended.
The commission found that the casino breached the Gambling Act by failing to offer prescribed information or advice about problem gambling to Keenan.
Keenan was jailed for three years in August 2004 after being convicted of stealing more than $500,000 from her employer.
The commission was told she sold her house, used the money from her marriage settlement, spent her inheritance, and stole from her employer.
She lost an average of $30,000 a month the year before being arrested.
Had they gotten away with this, it would have dealt a serious blow to the enforcement of the casino regulation laws.
It’s nice to see not everyone who puts up a bogs defence to overwhelming charges can just talk their way out of it.
