Implementing the Government Commitment to Reduce Gaming Machine Authorisations

As of 30 June 2017 there were 4,985 gaming machine authorisations in the Territory.  

The Parliamentary Agreement 9.1 includes a commitment to “reduce the number of electronic gaming machine licences to 4,000 by 1 July 2020”.

The Options Paper Implementing the Government’s Commitments to Reduce Gaming Machine Authorisations has been developed to provide options to implement a fair and achievable model to reduce gaming machine authorisations in the Territory to a maximum of 4,000.  Matters to consider include:

  • an appropriate framework for the surrender of gaming machine authorisations;
  • the timing of surrender of gaming machine authorisations;
  • the maximum number of authorisations on an authorisation certificate;
  • future arrangements for quarantine and storage of gaming machines; and
  • the maximum number of authorisations in the Territory after reaching 4,000.
