Police were called to Star City at Pyrmont early this morning after reports of a fight between two groups.

Police said the brawl started inside the venue before security staff threw a number of people out.

"A number of people fled the scene upon police arrival, however, 10 people were arrested at the location," police said in a statement.

"They have been taken to various police stations throughout the city and are currently assisting police with their inquiries."

Commenting on the brawls, Australian Media Man, Greg Tingle, told Gambling911.com:

"This is the latest of numerous high profile fights at Australian casinos.  Last year a model was shot whilst working at Star City.  In addition in recent months there's been a number of bashings at Burwood Casino in Perth and last month there was an in-play poker fight at the Rock Tavern (a club with strong similarities to a casino) Cairns, Queensland.  Packer's Crown Casino in Melbourne currently has a number of legal fights on its hands, but has managed to avoid on premise violence to the best of public knowledge. Seems there's plenty more material available for more episodes of Network Nine's 'Underbelly' and Channel Seven's 'Gangs Of Oz'. These recent high profile criminal acts at some of Australia's premier gambling venues are certainly not going to hurt the popularity of online casinos."
