Penrith panthers is already the largest club in the world!
Im not a big fan of casinos, they are tacky, if Panthers is more focused on the Entertainment Complex side of things then yeah COOL! But just to have 100 billion pokies to make it the 2nd largest casino aint very exciting.
Are we talking about the franchise or head corporation of Panthers? Because we have a Panthers in Port Macquarie, but it sure as hell is not that great. So is "Panthers" the biggest club cumulatively, like when you combine all their clubs?
^ no actualy . but those other clubs are owned by same company, kinda like westfields ay!
I think Penrith Panthers is the largest registered sports club in the world. Panthers is a good thing it has good facilities and brings amenity to the area IMO.

Apart from owning Australia's current national rubgy league champions, the Panthers Entertainment Group operates Australia's largest chain of licensed clubs across 13 venues. Panthers has almost 150,000 registered members.
I've known about the panthers plans for years. A few years back it was reported that Star City Casino's monopoly will end in 2007 and the state government will issue another casino licence for Sydney, which panthers is expected to get.
Star City Casino's monopoly will end in 2007 <---- what does this mean fabian?

It's the only casino permitted to trade in Sydney.
oh ok so sort of like a copywrites thing, i never knew that so does each state only have one casino?

It has nothing to do with copyright!!!! Copyrights are more related towards property.

And each state and territory has it's own regulations regarding Casino's. For Sydney/NSW, there can only be one casino at present.
lol i know i was just trying to compare like ....oh it two hard to explain ;)
They should include an Indoor Water Park with there plans...that would be cool. Oh and an indoor Ski Field, and maybe a rollercoaster too. Then i will be excited.
^like that place in Canada? that would be sweat!!!!
Edmonton Mall, yeah thats the place. We should get one of those.
