Gaming Machine Licenses
If you currently hold, or have applied for, any of the following liquor licenses you can apply to the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) for a Gaming machine licence:
Note: Licence applications are assessed against the requirements of the Gaming Machine Act 1991 and a recommendation is made to the Commissioner for Liquor and Gaming. The Commissioner determines whether or not to grant a licence, taking into account the social and community impacts of gaming.
Apply for a new gaming machine licence
Note: An application for a gaming machine licence will not be determined until an eligible liquor licence has been granted.
