You will require this licence if you intend to run a bingo centre. A bingo centre is any place where sessions of bingo are regularly conducted on a commercial basis (more than seven times in a seven day period). The licence authorises the holder to perform all functions necessary for carrying on the activities associated with the operation of a bingo centre.
You cannot apply for this licence if you are a venue operator, gaming operator or casino operator in Victoria or elsewhere in Australia, or an associate of a venue operator or gaming operator.
A wagering and betting licensee may, by notice to the Commission, appoint as operator a company that is whole-owned subsidiary by the licensee, has a physical place of business in Victoria and is approved by the Commission.
Community or charitable organisations do not require a licence to hold bingo sessions on a non-profit basis.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
