Casino Not a Big Draw for Tourists

Guam’s 80-page casino initiative mentions Japanese tourists passing through Guam to get to a casino in Cairns, Australia, as one of the reasons Guam should legalize casinos here as well.

But the 7-year-old Reef Hotel Casino in Cairns is only a small element of that city’s tourism industry and struggled to establish itself, said Sandy White, executive officer of the Cairns Chamber of Commerce.

Tourists come to Cairns mostly for other reasons, he said.

"The casino was originally built for the high-rollers in the Japanese market, but it never really took off," White said. "It’s only been in recent years that the casino’s actually turned a profit for its shareholders."

Officials with the Reef Hotel Casino did not respond to a request for comment on that establishment’s place in the local economy.

White noted that it is difficult to compare Guam’s tourism industry to the Cairns tourism industry, which serves primarily domestic visitors. Japanese visitors represent only 20 to 25 percent of tourists there, he said.

"The casino itself doesn’t play a huge role in attracting tourists," White said. "It does put dollars into the place, but I don’t think it’s the reason that people travel to Cairns. … It’s just one of those things that people expect to find when they travel to an international destination."

It is difficult to gauge the social effect of that 128-room hotel/casino on the local population, since gaming machines have been widely available to Cairns residents for a long time in pubs, clubs and parlors. Some businesses operate several hundred gambling machines, White said.
