Regulatory framework for public lotteries in New South Wales

Consultation paper

On 9 April 2009 the Government announced its intention to proceed with the sale of NSW Lotteries Corporation, and to provide the Minister for Gaming and Racing with the power to grant a licence to an approved operator to conduct public lotteries in New South Wales

One of the Government’s key objectives for the sale is to ensure that the regulatory framework applicable to public lotteries maintains the responsible and orderly operation of lottery games in NSW.

A review of the regulatory regime applicable to lotteries in NSW was conducted to ensure that this key objective is achieved. The review has recommended changes to the regulatory regime applicable to lotteries in NSW.

As part of this process, comments are being sought from industry, the community, and any other interested parties. A consultation paper has been prepared by the Department of the Arts, Sport and Recreation to give interested parties the opportunity to participate in the discussion. The Department invites public comment on the consultation paper.
