Gambling signage that must be displayed by law
Under the Gaming Machine Act 1991 and the Casino Control Act 1982, there are signs that must be displayed in gaming machine venues and casinos and locations in which these must be shown.
Penalties exist for not complying with these requirements. The value of each penalty unit is $133.45 (current from 1 July 2019). (Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), penalty units are not changing for 2020–21.)
