Information about operating a gaming venue.
This page outlines the process for surrendering a gaming licence or permit.
The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) has provided technical standards to assist in the evaluation of gaming equipment for operation in Victoria.
Where a venue operator enters into an agreement to purchase a gaming venue from another venue operator, regulatory approval must be obtained from the VCGLR before settlement can take place.
Venue operators may only operate gaming machines if they hold gaming machines entitlements. This page outlines the process of amending the conditions, transferring, the entitlements register and the Ministerial Determination and rules.
Through the nominee, venue operators are responsible for notifying the VCGLR of certain changes in the licensee’s situation.
It is important that you read the information and complete all required sections before you lodge your application form.
