Casinos in the NT

The Northern Territory (NT) has two land-based casinos - in Darwin and Alice Springs.

To run a casino you must apply to, and negotiate an agreement with, the NT Government.

Mindil Beach Casino and Resort: Darwin

Mindil Beach Casino and Resort operates under an operator's agreement with the NT Government.

This casino is also licensed to operate NT Keno throughout hotels and clubs in the NT.

Lasseters Hotel Casino: Alice Springs

Lasseters operates under an operator's agreement with the NT Government.

NT Keno is run on the property under licence from Mindil Beach Casino and Resort.


During the term of a casino licence, the government can not grant another casino licence without the existing casino operator's consent.
