Venue Operational Requirements

4.1 Gaming Periods

A venue operator may offer gaming to a person only:
    • during the period or periods when a licence granted under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 in respect of the premises authorises the consumption on those premises of liquor supplied on those premises; or
    • in the case of premises licensed under Part I of the Racing Act 1958, during a race meeting but not during any break from gaming that the venue operator takes in order to comply with a condition of premises approval or a venue operator’s licence.

A venue operator must, during any period in which the venue operator offers gaming to a person, afford members of the public aged 18 and over unfettered access to the gaming areas of the venue, subject to the Act, any conditions on the venue operator's licence and any rules made by the Commission that apply to the venue operator.
