Sun International’s (SUI) expansion into Latin America helped it grow overall revenue 15% to R12bn‚ but the casino group lost R503m in the year to end-June due to purchasing costs and legal settlements.

Sun International receives approval from the relevant gambling regulators in Latin America for the merger of its Latin American portfolio with Chile-based Dreams.

Work is now underway in earnest at Sun International’s latest project – a major development in Pretoria’s eastern suburbs.

Transnet on Tuesday concluded an innovative partnership with Africa’s largest tourism, leisure and gaming group Sun International, as the state-owned freight and logistics company accelerates its drive to include the private sector in its operations.

Sun International pulls out all the cost- cutting stops to offset tough trading conditions in its SA market but is tripped up by a poor start at its new casino in Panama and foreign exchange losses in Nigeria.

Casino industry will effectively be reduced to two big rollers Tsogo Sun and Sun International.

Gaming giant Sun International could foot a large development bill, equivalent to roughly a quarter of its market capitalisation, if it's allowed to move its Morula Sun casino operation from its location outside Mabopane to the more vibrant surrounds of Menlyn in Tshwane.

Sun International is still battling to tweak a profit from its five star Table Bay Hotel at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. 

Sun International plans to create a new R3bn urban entertainment destination at Menlyn in Tshwane's eastern suburbs.
