Gambling regulator seeks public feedback on standards for cashless gaming at pokies venues

Wednesday, 16 August 2017

The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation is seeking public feedback on two draft documents in relation to the future operation of 'Ticket-In Ticket-Out' (TITO) and Card-Based Cashless (CBC) gaming at clubs and hotels.

The commission is seeking written feedback on the two draft documents by Friday 1 September 2017.

The two documents – Technical Standards and Operational Requirements – are proposed regulatory instruments under the Gambling Regulation Act 2003, which will be enforced at pokies venues where TITO or CBC gaming is introduced.

The introduction and operation of cashless gaming at pokies venues is intended to be carried out with integrity, transparency, fairness and reliability, as well as support responsible gambling.

The exact design of TITO/CBC systems is a commercial matter to be determined in consultation with the provider and the Monitoring Licensee (Intralot), subject to compliance with requirements in the Technical Standards, when finalised.
