Authorisation to Keep Approved Gaming Machines - New South Wales

Service summary

You will require this authorisation if you operate a hotel or club and you intend to provide gaming machines (for example, poker machines or any other approved progressive gaming devices) for public use.

A hotel is a licensed business whose primary purpose is the sale of alcohol to the public for consumption on or off the premises. A club is an organisation that is dedicated to a particular interest or activity (for example sporting clubs).

This authorisation allows you to keep or dispose of an approved gaming machine. This authorisation relates to the total number of approved gaming machines that you are allowed to keep on your premises at any one time, as well as to the keeping of a particular machine on your premises.

Please note that you also need to apply for a gaming machine threshold (GMT) and purchase gaming machine entitlements (GME) before you can apply for authorisation to provide any gaming machines for public use. Your GMT sets the maximum number of GME you are able to purchase. The number of GME's held allows for the number of gaming machines you are able to obtain an authorisation for and provide to the public. Until you have received approval your GMT is set at zero (for instance, you are not allowed to provide any gaming machines for public use).

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
