This app is the new app of the Star casino in Sydney. The Star Sydney formerly Star City Casino and prior to that, Sydney Harbour Casino in Pyrmont, Sydney, is the second-largest casino in Australia after Melbourne’s Crown Casino. Overlooking Darling Harbour, The Star, owned by Star Entertainment Group features two gaming floors, eight bars, seven restaurants, 351 hotel rooms and 130 serviced and privately owned apartments.

It also includes the 2,000 seat Sydney Lyric theatre and Event Centre. Its gaming operations are overseen and controlled by the New South Wales Casino Control Authority and are licensed to be the only legal casino in New South Wales.

The Star Entertainment Group Limited is an Australian gambling and entertainment company. The company was formerly known as Echo Entertainment.

The Star Entertainment owns and operates the Treasury Casino & Hotel, The Star Gold Coast and The Star, Sydney. Star Entertainment holds two out of Queensland’s four casino operation licenses.

The group also manages the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre on behalf of the Queensland Government. Star owns a 50% stake in the Sheraton Mirage resort on the Southport Spit.

The casino features two gaming floors — the main gaming floor on level one for general entry and the Sovereign Room on level three. The Sovereign Room table bet ranges from $25 to $75,000 and also contains the Inner Sanctum, with table bet ranges of $100 to $500,000. The two areas are only available to high rollers and international guests following an application for membership and review by The Star’s management. The Inner Sanctum pits are frequently used for junket players.

Recent rebuilding works have added extra gaming areas for the main gaming floor with the addition of the Oasis Lounge and the 36 Degrees Bar although these new areas have not increased the number of tables or machines available in total. The main gaming floor is divided into three major parts — Table Games, Electronic Gaming, and Poker. The number of poker tables has been steadily increased and now stands at 40 tables.

At Star Club silver membership players can opt for cashless play. They can transfer and play with your cash as easily as you do with casino dollars. Your Membership Card becomes your wallet, allowing you to easily transfer cash directly to the compatible electronic gaming machine or electronic table game.

When you have finished playing, or want to move to another machine, remove your card and the unused credits will be transferred back to your Cashless Account.

Follow the steps below to activate cashless play:

  • Visit any Cashier with your initial deposit to activate your Cashless Account.
  • To start a Cashless session, make sure the credit meter on your compatible electronic gaming machine or electronic table game is zero.
  • Insert your Membership Card and press the GREEN Dollar icon on the small touch screen.
  • Press the ARROW next to CASHLESS. This is where you can always check your balance.
  • Enter your PIN.
  • Enter the amount you wish to play with and press the TICK icon.
  • When you are finished playing, or you want to move to another machine, remove your Membership Card and your credits will automatically transfer back to your Cashless Account.

To deposit or withdraw funds from your Cashless Account:

– Insert notes into a compatible electronic gaming machine or electronic table game while your Membership Card is inserted and Cashless active, then remove your card for your credits to transfer to your Cashless Account.

– You can deposit and withdraw at selected Cash/ Ticket Machines by selecting CASH to CARD to deposit or CARD to CASH to withdraw funds.

– If you are withdrawing more than $5,000, you will need to visit the Cashier.

Make sure the credit meter on the compatible electronic gaming machine or electronic table game is zero prior to commencing your Cashless session.

Treat your Membership Card as cash. If you have a balance in your Cashless Account, it will be stored on your Membership Card.

You need to keep your PIN secure. You can change your PIN at any time at a Member Kiosk or online at If you have forgotten your PIN, visit The Star Club Desk.

For example if your credit meter is $7,500 or more when you remove your Membership Card, the credit will not automatically transfer to your Cashless Account. The machine will lock requiring assistance from an attendant.

Before you leave the machine, remove your Membership Card and wait to ensure that your credits have been transferred back to your Cashless Account. Once the credit meter is zero, your credits have been transferred.

To check your balance, you can insert your Membership Card into a compatible electronic gaming machine, electronic table game, or at a Cash/Ticket Machine.

Star Assist is also available with your Cashless Session allowing you to manage your gaming spend, or usage time while playing any compatible electronic gaming machine or electronic table game.

Finally remember that by activating a Cashless Account on your Membership Card, you will activate at The Star Gold Coast, Treasury Brisbane and The Star Sydney. By depositing into your Cashless Account at The Star Gold Coast, you will only be able to access those funds at The Star Gold Coast.
