Gambling signage

What gaming sign do I need? We have a new online tool to help you

We have a new online tool called What sign do I need? to help venue operators understand what liquor or gaming signs are required by law and shows visually where they should be displayed. The tool has been successfully trialed on OLGR's interactive kiosks at our head office reception over recent months.

Samples of mandatory gambling signage are provided below.

Read our new Gaming Machine Harm Minimisation fact sheet on our information hub page for an overview of the new materials.

Gaming venues must ensure they have new contact cards on display. New gaming signage and updated player information brochures must be on display from 1 June 2010.
