Casino Employee / Key Employee Licence - Western Australia

Description

You will require a licence if you intend to work for a licensed casino in Western Australia as a manager or as an employee where your duties relate to casino operations. Please be aware that the casino will advise you of whether you will require a licence or not. There are two types of licences:

  • Casino Employee Licence
  • Casino Key Employee Licence.

A Casino Employee Licence is required if you intend to be employed or work at a casino where your duties or responsibilities relate directly to the gaming operations of the casino. For example, you are a pit floor employee like a croupier, or alternatively an IT contractor and your role will involve computer systems used in gaming operations.

A Casino Key Employee Licence is required if you intend to be employed or work at a casino in a management role or in any role in which you are empowered to make decisions, using your discretion, that regulate the operation of a licensed casino.

You may not require a licence if your work at the casino does not directly relate to gaming operations. For example, you may not need a licence if your work only consists of duties related to serving food and drink, entertainment, clerical duties, or carrying out building or maintenance work.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
