27 March 2020: Important information about The Star Club Membership

Membership Status   

We know that earning Tier Points and your Membership Status are important to you. We also know the current environment means you are unable to visit us. With this in mind, we are implementing measures to provide members with some assistance in the coming months around your Membership.

We will be gifting members Bonus Tier Points each month from April to June 2020. Bonus Tier Points will be added to member’s accounts on the first day of each month (in addition to any Tier Points you may earn).

The number of Bonus Tier Points which will be gifted to members each month will be based on the average monthly Tier Point earn required to reach each member’s current Membership Tier annually.

Please note these Bonus Tier Points will not contribute to earning Star Gifts, and as a result the points to next Star Gift and Star Gifts earned that you see in your Member Dashboard may be incorrect, which will be fixed as quickly as possible.  The number of Bonus Tier Points received each month will change if your Tier changes.

 

You don’t need to do anything, as we’ll automatically add these Bonus Tier Points to your balance.

The Government has made further announcements regarding indoor gathering and social distancing guidance.  
 
In accordance with this guidance we are introducing additional social distancing measures including: 

  1. Creating dedicated areas across the property that will hold a maximum of 100 people and meet the 4sqm per person requirement 
  2. Reducing capacity at table games to three guests per table (down from our previously implemented five guests per table) with no standing players permitted  
  3. Further restricting the number of guests across our food and beverage outlets


To allow for the above measures we have altered certain gaming spaces that will result in entry restrictions due to capacity. Team members will be available at our entry points to assist you.


These plans are in addition to those we have previously advised.  We will continue to update this announcement page with any further changes and we have also set up a hotline you can

access 24 hours-a-day - 1800 399 222. 
 

The health and wellbeing of our members, guests and team members continues to be our No. 1 priority.

The Prime Minister also advised earlier today that additional measures around social distancing are currently being developed by the States & Territories. The Star Entertainment Group is actively engaging with governments in NSW and Queensland and working through our specific position given our properties operate in a precinct fashion. The Star will adhere to any direct advice we receive from governments.

16 March 2020: Social Distancing Measures

SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES

The Prime Minister announced last week the cancellation of non-essential, organised public gatherings of more than 500 people and other social distancing guidelines in response to COVID-19. In line with those announcements, we have introduced the following social distancing measures:

  • deactivation of every second gaming machine and electronic table game to create additional distance
  • reducing the capacity at table games, including increasing distance at seated tables games between players and restricting the total number of players at each stand up table game
  • restricting the number of guests in individual food and beverage, banqueting and conferencing, and theatre facilities to under 500 persons with limited density for each outlet.

MAIN GAMING FLOOR MEASURES

Table games will be reduced to a maximum seating of five guests per table with no standing players permitted, only seated players will be permitted to wager. The craps, big wheel and sic bo (double-sided tables) will be the only exception with eight players permitted with social spacing to accommodate four players either end.

  • Only seated players may wager at a gaming table
  • Standing players will not be permitted to place a wager
  • Standing players will be asked to step back from gaming tables
  • Seats at gaming tables will be reduced to 5 with the remainder of chairs being removed from the gaming floor, this has commenced
  • Impacted games with 5 seats include Baccarat, Black Jack, Roulette, Pai Gow, Poker, Poker derivatives, and Sic Bo
  • Craps tables in all properties reduced to 8 betting positions, 4 positions available on each end

13 March 2020: Hygienic Measures

Given the World Health Organisation’s pandemic announcement, it’s time to outline the precautionary measures we are taking to best deliver an environment that you can visit and feel comfortable.

Ongoing vigilance around personal hygiene and cleaning standards remains key. We have significantly increased the frequency and detail of our already best practice cleaning procedures.

This involves an even sharper focus on sanitisation of bathrooms, touchpoints around properties – from door handles, handrails to ATM and lift buttons – and even more thorough cleaning of hotel rooms including phones and remote controls.

As part of our precautionary measures, we’ve also restricted non-essential work-related air travel for staff until further notice.

Visible reminders will be placed for all Guests and Team Members to regularly wash hands with soap and water or hand sanitiser, and request people to avoid touching their faces.
