Crown Resorts eyes full control of Betfair

    Crown Resorts, run by billionaire James Packer, wants to buy up the 50 percent it doesn’t already own in Betfair, according to media reports. The company is run as a joint venture between Crown and the U.K.’s Betfair Group. Packer is keen on acquiring the rest of Betfair because it would hand them total control of a Tasmanian bookmaking license.
