Gaming machine regional caps and limits

On 10 September 2012, the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) determined the maximum permissible number of gaming machines entitlements available for gaming in each capped region.

There are 20 capped regions in Victoria. Any area not covered by a regional cap is subject to a municipal limit.

Please view the Commission’s direction on Regional caps (PDF, 147KB) published on 13 September 2012 (PDF, 147KB) for the maximum permissible number of entitlements under which gaming may be conducted in capped regions. A list of the 20-capped regions for 2012 (PDF, 245KB) is available to download.

What is a capped region?

Each capped region has been provided a maximum permissible number of entitlements. This does not mean that gaming machines can be automatically added to a region.

The below table shows the maximum permissible number of entitlements available in each capped region as at 12 October 2012:
