James Packer rich list
2019 Rich Lister James Packer

The career of Australian casino and online mogul James Packer is increasingly taking on the characteristics of a night in one of his VIP high-roller rooms, lurching from stunning success to spectacular failures, yet he’s back playing again and aiming for another big win.

Packer’s China dream-turned-nightmare, and indeed extended annus horribilis, is finally over, with the last of the 17 staff and two former staff of Crown Resorts who were detained last October, and subsequently arrested, charged and pleaded guilty to gambling crimes, being released on the weekend.  Packer holds a 48% share in the listed gambling company.
