June 11 (Reuters) - Casino operator SkyCity Entertainment
said on Friday it was expecting its adjusted profit to
surge as much as 33% in fiscal 2021, driven by strong trading at
its electronic gaming business in New Zealand.
SkyCity is expecting a normalized net profit after tax
between NZ$84 million ($60.43 million) and NZ$88 million for
2021, compared with NZ$66.3 million a year earlier, the company
said in a statement.
The company's local gaming businesses in New Zealand
continued to see strong performance, while its Australian
casino, SkyCity Adelaide, also showed consistent performance,
