A gambling provider or registered bookmaker is required to display a notice about the prohibition of persons under 18 years in a gaming area.
The Victorian Commission of Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) has provided Guidelines for the display of notice of under 18 years in gaming venue to be used as a guide. Failure to display will result in enforcement action.
These Player Information Standards contain printed materials that are part of a range of initiatives to promote responsible gambling in Victoria.
The Gambling Regulations 2015 enable the Minister to make standards setting out the information and the required form of printed player information materials that are required to be displayed in venues.
The VCGLR is responsible for ensuring industry compliance with this requirement.
As required by the Regulations, the VCGLR must provide player information posters, talkers, brochures and responsible gambling signs in sufficient numbers. This enables venue operators to comply with the requirement to provide responsible gambling materials in their venue.
The VCGLR must also provide a copy of each player information poster, talker and brochure to the casino operator in a form that allows them to be copied.
It is the casino operator's responsibility to copy player information posters, talkers and brochures in sufficient numbers to comply with the requirement to provide responsible gambling materials in the casino.
For information about how to display the posters, talkers and brochures see the display gaming signage section.
An infringement notice of up to twenty penalty units applies to the incorrect or lack of use of YourPlay logos.
As required by the Regulations, the VCGLR must provide access to the electronic logos.
YourPlay logos must be used on all gaming and casino venue player cards, websites, mobile applications and any loyalty scheme application forms. The YourPlay logos must be used as directed in the Player information standards. The fact sheet clearly outlines the logo specifications including colour, font, size and application to light and dark backgrounds. Specifications cannot be changed to suit your branding or collateral.
