You require approval of your premises to determine it's suitable for gaming.
The VCGLR will consider the following when determining whether to approve an application for approval of premises as suitable for gaming:
In addition, if the premises contains any area or facility designed specifically for children or that could reasonably be expected to be used by children, the VCGLR will also have regard to the Decision making guidelines - children's play areas (PDF, 438.83 KB).
Please download and complete the Approval of premises for gaming and Mandatory application form with the application fee.
Incomplete applications will not be accepted and will be returned to you.
You will be advised in writing of the outcome of the VCGLR's decision concerning your application.
If the application is successful and the applicant subsequently satisfies all conditions of the approval, a Notice of Approved Premises for Gaming will be issued together with an approved plan of the premises and a plan of the approved gaming machine area. The approval is ongoing unless cancelled, revoked or surrendered.
