The Liquor and Gambling Commissioner has recently published an updated version of the Gaming Machines Gambling Code of Practice (the Code), which can be found on the CBS website by clicking here.
Please take the time now to download and print the updated Code and replace the old version found in your venue’s Responsible Gambling Document.
Most of the updates relate to Part 3 of the Code – Responsible Gambling Practices – and CBS has advised that it will issue a bulletin regarding the changes, as well as an updated self-assessment checklist, very soon.
The updated Code commenced on 31 July, and it is important to note that while the following changes (highlighted in bold):
must be implemented as soon as possible, CBS has advised that these new requirements will not be enforced for a period of 6 months. This grace period is to allow licensees to exhaust existing batches of printed material and to purchase a colour printer, if they do not already have one.
