Gaming Machine Entitlements


The new gaming machine arrangements came into effect on 16 August 2012.

Venue operators are now responsible for the ownership and operation of gaming machines. The venue operator must hold a gaming machine entitlement for each machine in operation.

Each entitlement authorises venue operators to operate one gaming machine for a period of 10 years from 2012.

The new arrangements are designed to:
  • Foster increased market competitiveness.
  • Allow venue operators to have more control over the way they run their gaming business and the services they offer.
