The AFL Finals Series celebrations can be a busy time of year for Victorian venues. The VCGLR will be working closely with Victoria Police to ensure licensees are meeting their obligations and keeping compliant by inspecting venues across Melbourne leading up to and over the Grand Final long weekend.
All electronic gaming machines are fitted with an Intralot Slot Machine Interface Board, known as a SMIB. This connects every operating machine to Intralot’s Central Monitoring and Control System and maintains the integrity of the machine’s operation. All gaming machines must have an unbroken seal. Machines with missing or broken seals should be removed from game play.
This year Responsible Gambling Awareness Week will run from 12-18 October.
In joint operations with Victoria Police, the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) will be attending the Caulfield Cup targeting patron intoxication and minors gambling or consuming alcohol.
