Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority
The Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority is responsible for performing casino, liquor and gaming machine regulatory and other decision-making functions on behalf of government. It also has similar responsibilities for registered clubs.
The Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority was previously called the Casino Liquor and Gaming Control Authority (from its establishment in 1 July 2008 to 29 February 2012). Laws giving effect to the name change were passed by NSW Parliament in November 2011. The change is aimed at more accurately reflecting the Authority's role as an independent decision maker and its primary duties in licensing the liquor and gaming industries in NSW.
The Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority's name takes effect from 1 March 2012. Its functions and powers remain the same as the previously named Authority.
