The National Gambling Reform Bill 2012 and associated Bills have been passed by Parliament with amendments (including a longer implementation period) and are awaiting Royal Assent.
The Bills require that:
• new machines manufactured or imported from end of 2014 be capable of supporting precommitment;
• all gaming machines are part of a state-wide precommitment system, and display electronic warnings, from 2018, with longer implementation timelines for small venues; and
• a $250 a day ATM withdrawal limit apply for gaming venues (other than casinos) from 1 February 2014.
