Crown Resorts says its employees detained in China have been charged with promoting gambling offences.

Crown said in February it had 14 employees held in China after one was released. He is pictured with wife Christina and daughters Kasey (left) and Chloe (right) on holiday in Uluru in the months before his arrest.

The biggest listed casino firm outside China said the cases had been referred to the Baoshan District Court.

The three Australians, Malaysian Alfread Gomez and fourteen Chinese nations were arrested on October 13 and 14 past year in coordinated police raids across several Chinese cities, amid a widespread government anti-corruption drive.

The company has been retreating from a decade-long foray into Macau, a southern Chinese territory and the global gaming hub, since 18 staff including its head of worldwide VIP sales were arrested for "gambling crimes" in China.


In a statement on Tuesday, Crown said that with the matter now before the court it would not be making further comment.

O'Connor was responsible for luring high-rolling casino players to Crown Casino in Melbourne.

While gambling is legal in Macau, it is illegal in mainland China.

Crown last month quit its remaining stake in Macau-focused Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd for $1.16 billion, ending a fraught offshore expansion and freeing up cash for new projects at home.
