What's this about?

A proposed Community Gaming Regulation 2020 has been developed to support the Community Gaming Act 2018, which has not yet commenced.

The Community Gaming Act and Community Gaming Regulation will replace the Lotteries and Art Unions Act 1901 and the Lotteries and Art Unions Regulation 2014.

The proposed regulation includes:

  • permitted gaming activities and key requirements
  • when an authority is required for a gaming activity
  • authority and conduct requirements, duration and costs of authorities
  • general requirements for gaming activities
  • advertising restrictions and audit requirements
  • when penalty notices may be imposed.

The proposed regulation retains many of the existing requirements for the conduct of gaming activities. It also modernises the legislation to introduce a more streamlined and principles-based approach to community gaming.
