The Star Entertainment Group (ASX:SGR) is up today on news its embattled Sydney casino The Star has been thrown a bone by the NSW government by way of a “transitional” tax levy for the next seven years.

The previous state government had proposed raising The Star’s tax rate on poker machines duties to the top rate of 60.7 per cent.

The Star had consistently maintained the former Treasurer’s proposed duty increase was not sustainable, flawed in its design and, if implemented as originally proposed, would essentially make the Star an unviable business and put thousands of jobs at risk.

The Star has confirmed today it’s reached an in-principle agreement with NSW Treasurer Daniel Mookhey to amend its duty arrangements with the State, which should deliver a more sustainable outcome for the casino.
