SnatchingTHE BBM team has what some would call an unhealthy obsession with casinos. We, however, would rather refer to it as a real talent on the roulette table.

However, it seems this weekend might be the time to strike on your local casino – the staff at Crown are set to strike during Caulfield Cup.

The Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Union (wouldn’t their Christmas parties be great?) has released a statement saying casino workers notified Crown late on Monday that strike action would start on Friday.

Crown spokespeople last week said the casino was confident its contingency plans were adequate to ensure the precinct continued to operate efficiently, but BBM is convinced this is the time to go for the jackpot – but we take no responsibility for the consequences.
