Packer sold Crown to private equity firm Blackstone for $8.9 billion in a deal that closed in June, pocketing $3.3 billion.
The sale marked the end of an important chapter in his life, which was at times embroiled in controversy amid investigations into the company and allegations of money laundering.
Despite the investigations, the father of three has credited his Melbourne, Perth and Sydney casinos for changing the cities ‘for the better’.
