SkyCity Adelaide was forced to close its doors on 18 November due to new restrictions imposed by the South Australian government, with a six-day lockdown announced after a number of COVID-19 cases were reported in the region.

The casino was expected to reopen again on 24 November, but instead opened on 22 November after being given the green light to recommence its operations two days ahead of schedule.

The announcement comes as the South Australian government lifted the restrictions in place in Adelaide, thus allowing SkyCity and other businesses to reopen in Adelaide.

A number of health and safety measures remain in place, including limiting entry to SkyCity Premier Rewards membership tiers only, as well as a maximum capacity of 100 people within the gaming area and each food and beverage outlet.

Social distancing measures and enhanced hygiene protocols are also in place.

SkyCity Group announced last week that its new $330m expansion of SkyCity Adelaide has been delayed due to the latest restrictions.

The planned development includes a 120-room luxury hotel Eos and several restaurants.

The company added that it’s New Zealand properties in Queenstown, Auckland and Hamilton have been unaffected by the events in South Australia, and that those venues will remain open.

Before the previous COVID-19 closure update, SkyCity reported that three of its executives will be leaving the company.
