New NSW Liquor & Gaming Rules Introduced

by | Jul 4, 2024 | Business, Politics | 0 comments

Pubs and clubs with gaming machines are now required to comply with important new measures intended to embed a culture of harm minimisation in venues to support people at risk of gambling harm.

Venues with more than 20 gaming machines now need to have a dedicated Responsible Gambling Officer (RGO) on duty while gaming machines are in operation.

Under the changes, which commenced on Monday, licensed venues are also banned from placing any signage or advertising relating to gaming machines either on, or visible from, an Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) or EFTPOS terminal, with signage that advertises or gives direction to ATMs or EFTPOS terminals also not allowed to be visible from a gaming machine or any part of a gaming area.

Liquor & Gaming NSW inspectors have already commenced visiting venues across the state to ensure they are aware of the new 1 July obligations, and will be providing further guidance to industry about the changes that apply from 1 January 2025.
