The renovations alone will cost close to $13 mill, and that’s on top of the $30m already spent consolidating the three properties in upmarket Vaucluse. Although the title deeds are now in Packer’s name, the paperwork behind the deals shows the three properties were transferred to him only in mid-December by a Manoc Developments Pty Ltd “without monetary consideration”. The “capital investment value” will be $12.96m, according to the report, which praised the overall design process and consultation with heritage consultants, describing it as “exemplary” and “a best-practice model”. In addition to the new “module”, renovations and additions will occur in the main house, made out of “a lightweight glass and steel structure”. At least two pedestrian entrances are to be sealed off and the only access will be via “two new 1.7m-high metal picket vehicular entry gates”.

Crocs are once again being used to shed light rays on the numerous factors that make punters more likely to become “problem gamblers”. Psychologist, Dr Matthew Rockloff and Nancy Greer of Central Queensland University in Bundaberg, reported their findings in the Journal of Gambling Studies. It is well known that gambling is often exciting and causes measurable symptoms of physiological arousal such as increased heart rate, says Rockloff. In the gaming environment, players often interpret such excitement as a “lucky feeling” and there is significant suggestion that this makes them more likely to take higher risks. Like “double of nothing” or pressing the “gamble” button on a pokie. Rockloff says casinos already use methods that cause excitement, including ringing bells, flashing lights and an open gaming floor. It’s a bells and whistles type environment, and never boring! “They don’t know why it works but they’ve noticed that if they have small gaming venues that they don’t make as much money as larger gaming venues,” he went on record with. Rockloff is interested in testing whether excitement really does cause you to lose yourself and take greater risks, and if so under what circumstances! In previous experiments, he blasted white noise at people who were gambling. This caused people to gamble more intensively, playing faster and placing larger bets. “If you do that in a casino environment, you’re going to lose more money more quickly.” Next up, he wanted to find a more clever and secret way of getting people excited, so he could see whether the same thing happened. – read on…The smiling professor designed an experiment that recruited some 103 visitors to a Queensland crocodile farm to play a simulated Electronic Gaming Machine on a laptop computer.
