Australian Casino King James Packer Lobbies Re Pokies, by Greg Tingle - 16th May 2011

Aussie casino and lifestyle king of the kids, James Packer, has been doing a bit of lobbying key people associated with Australian pokies reforms Media Man has learned.

Packer has raised concerns over the impact reforms may have on Australian land based casinos.

Anti pokie campaigner and all round poster child, MP Andrew Wilkie confirmed he met Packer at Crown Casino on March 20 and had spoken with him by phone a number of times, but played down the significance.

"Just about every heavyweight involved in the debate has spoken with me, or me with them, by now".

Packer hasn't commented to the press re his meeting with Wilkie as best as reporters can ascertain.

Wilkie has been busy meeting members of the crossbench while Packer is of course busy taking care of business...and family matters.
