As a diversified entertainment group, Tabcorp strives to offer a first-class entertainment experience for our customers, great opportunities for our employees, support in the community and value for our shareholders.

Tabcorp manages leading customer brands in Australia, including TAB, Tabaret, Keno, Luxbet, TAB Sportsbet, Tabcorp Gaming Solutions, Sky Racing and Sky Sports Radio, serving millions of customers every day.
The company continues to actively support many local communities with a range of donations and sponsorships for sporting groups and community services. This is on top of the company’s contributions to state community benefit funds in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, which in the year to 30 June 2010 totalled $87.9 million.
Tabcorp was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) in August 1994, at $2.25 per share, to acquire the wagering and gaming businesses of the former Victorian Totalizator Agency Board. Tabcorp acquired the Star City hotel and casino, a major entertainment complex in Sydney, in 1999. In 2003 the company merged with Jupiters, the owner of hotel and casino complexes in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Townsville as well as gaming machine monitoring. In 2004, Tabcorp completed the acquisition of Tab Limited, the New South Wales based wagering, media and gaming company. In June 2011, Tabcorp completed the demerger of its Casinos Business to form the newly listed Echo Entertainment Group Limited.
