A new $250 million high-roller floor the size of an NRL field has been unveiled at Sydney’s The Star casino.
High-end gamblers will be introduced to the exclusive ‘Sovereign Room’ on Friday after the harbourside casino opens its doors for the first time in three months.
The elite space covers more than 5,000 square metres and includes four private dining rooms, gaming salons and a ‘Chairman’s Area’ for the highest tier gamblers.
‘This is an offering that has been a long time in the making and we’re proud of delivering what is unarguably one of the finest VIP gaming areas in the world,’ a spokesperson from The Star casino told Daily Mail Australia.

The luxurious area, which took five years to develop and two years to build, will allow high-end punters to bet up to $100,000 at baccarat, roulette and blackjack tables.
International and domestic high rollers will dine on 400 kilograms of lobster and 2000 abalone per month served from the casino’s live seafood tanks.
Patrons of the invitation-only room will also enjoy harbour views from a sunken bar that features five-metre tall floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Star said its premium gaming area would attract visitors to Sydney.
‘We’re talking about high net worth local, interstate and overseas individuals or families who will also want to dine, shop and visit tourist attractions, driving significant economic benefits for the State,’ the spokesperson explained.
The Sovereign Room, which has a capacity of around 700, will even treat punters to a lavish stroll in a living garden as they move between its gaming rooms.
The exclusive gambling area was built using 245 tonnes of Turkish and Italian marble and will surround high-end patrons with 83 pieces of multicultural art.
A 500,000-piece stainless steel sculpture by Beijing artist Zheng Lu will greet VIPs as they enter the room.

The Sovereign Room also features private gaming rooms and a ‘Chairman’s Area’ for its most exclusive patrons
The Sovereign Room will also house 58 lighting features and include 15 bespoke chandeliers sourced from the Czech Republic.
A series of floor to ceiling light fixtures will replicate the light bulbs and fuses of the Sydney Electrical Lighting Station that once stood on the site of The Star.
The Star spokesperson said the casino was prepared to ‘deliver world class assets’.
‘We’ve done that on a luxurious level with highest quality fixtures, fittings, furnishings, food, gaming facilities and view,’ the spokesperson said.
The Sovereign Room also expects to serve patrons 150 kilograms of Barramundi a month and will provide a menu featuring Russian Caviar, Hervey Bay Scallops and Wagyu steak.
The private gaming floor is the most exclusive area in the entire casino and can only be accessed by The Star’s Platinum and Diamond Members.
Access to the Sovereign Room is by invitation only and members will also be allowed to bring a guest.
The Star’s exclusive area is set to rival James Packer’s nearby Crown casino when it opens its VIP-only venue in Barangaroo at the end of the year.
