Player Information Standards and Mandatory Gaming Signage

Player Information Standards are part of a range of initiatives to promote responsible gambling in Victoria and must be displayed at the entrance to, and within, each gaming area in a prescribed way.

If you own or operate a gaming venue in Victoria, you must display responsible gambling signs and printed materials in your venue as instructed, or penalties apply.

Inspectors from the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) carry out regular site visits to venues to check if the correct signage and materials are displayed during compliance inspections.

You can find out more about your requirements below.

What must venues display?

Posters / responsible gambling signage

You must display A2 size* posters/responsible gambling signage so they are clearly visible to a person sitting or standing in front of a gaming machine, and in a location that makes them clearly visible to a person entering a gaming machine area.

You must display one A2 size* poster/responsible gambling signage for each 15 machines, and an additional poster for any extra machines that number less than 15 in total.

You must display one A2 size* poster/responsible gambling signage at the entrance of your gaming area.

*NOTE: There are two different kinds of A2 posters available - one with a green background and the other blue. You must distribute these two kinds as evenly as possible throughout your venue following the display guidelines above.

Talkers for each gaming machine in your venue

You must display one A5 size* talker for each gaming machine in your venue.

These must be displayed on the front of the machine so they are clearly visible to any person who uses the gaming machine.

*NOTE: There are two different kinds of A5 talkers available - one with a green background and the other blue. You must distribute these two kinds as evenly as possible throughout your venue following the display guidelines above.
