  • responsible gambling.

Rules ancillary to gaming

As part of compliance obligations, all gaming machine licensees must display the rules ancillary to gaming in each gaming area of their licensed premises.

Player information and gambling signage

Under the Queensland responsible gambling code of practice and relevant legislation, gambling providers must provide certain information to their customers about the odds of winning and where help for problem gambling is available.

The Queensland Government has developed in-venue gambling signage that satisfies these requirements. To download these signs and other materials, and for information about where to display the signs, visit our compliance signage and other materials for gambling providers guide.
