New NSW gaming regulations Ready to come into effect


The Casino Control Regulation 2019 and the New South Wales Gaming Machines Regulation 2019 will both come into effect on 1 September, escorting in changes primarily related to harm minimisation measures.

The new codification sees a levy of at least 5% of gaming machine lease payments or $1,000 per gaming machine lease per year (whichever is higher) to the Responsible Gambling Fund introduced, while gaming-related application and licence fees will be automatically adjusted in line with inflation.

Also updated are needs around responsible gaming information. Under the Gaming Machines Regulation, Sign 4G, which consists of the word “Think” and three pieces of information about problem gambling, must be displayed in all licensed venues.

The revised regulations however, clarify that failure to do so will now be regarded as only one offence, following the Liquor and Gaming Board said the previous regulation was “unclear” over whether it was one breach of regulations, or three.

Both regulations now no longer describe particular player information and harm minimisation messages. alternatively, the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority (ILGA) will have the sovereignty to change and ratify the content of messages in signs, notices and player information brochures, a move the NSW Liquor and Gaming Board believes will

“ensure messages are fit for purpose and based on current research, industry best practice and player behaviour”.

In gaming areas, venues will also no longer be needed to hang clocks, due to evidence that clocks hung in gaming areas have little impact on harm minimisation.

The Casino Control Regulation 2019 will imitate new supervised service of alcohol framework requirements, together with those liquor licensees and approved managers regulated under the Casino Control Regulation 2019 need to complete Licensee and/or Advanced Licensee training.
