Gambling fees are charged for licence applications, and a range of other activities relating to the licensing system. This page outlines these fees, as well as offences and penalties.
Any application received by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) must be accompanied by the correct fee. Failure to submit the correct fee will result in the application being returned.
On the 1 July each year, government fees and fines associated with non-compliance are increased automatically under the Monetary Units Act 2004.
The increases to application fees and fines for non-compliance with gambling laws occur immediately.
For the current fee amounts, download the Gambling licence fees fact sheet 2018-19 (PDF, 296.36 KB).
Gambling and gambling-related offences are regulated under the Gambling Regulation Act 2003.
The legislation consolidates the various offences previously relating to lotteries, unlawful games, betting, totalisators and betting exchanges, replacing them with three new offences relating to conducting 'unauthorised gambling'.
See Gambling and gambling-related offences for more information.
The VCGLR fees fact sheets are based on the Department of Justice and Regulation list of automatically indexed fees and fines.
