National Leisure and Gaming (NLG) venue the El Cortez Hotel in Canley Heights has taken out first place on the list of the top 200 gaming venues released by the NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing (OLGR) for the September quarter.

The NSW OLGR rankings are based on a venue’s net revenue from gaming and are compiled every quarter.

NLG managing director, Andrew Jolliffe, said the NLG team was thrilled to enjoy the state’s top billing as the number one gaming venue.

"This result has vindicated our group gaming strategy, and is both instructive in terms of the focus we as a company apply to this revenue centre, and rewarding for the team at the coal face," he said.

"The genesis for a result like this is simply the hands on, on-site, execution of a considered strategy; not a white-board in an office somewhere."

Following the El Cortez Hotel on the list was the Meridian Hotel, Cambridge Tavern, Oasis on Beamish, Campsie Hotel, Markets Hotel, Eastwood Hotel, Sefton Hotel, Cabramatta Club Hotel, with the Burwood Hotel rounding out the top 10.

NLG now have 20 hotels in the Top 200 – up by two on the June quarter.

"The tangible benefit from this accolade is an injection into our human capital; something we are very proud of," Jolliffe said.
