Gaming machine entitlements (clubs)

If you are a community club licensee that has been granted a gaming machine licence, or approved by the Commissioner for Liquor and Gaming to increase the number of gaming machines on your premises, you must obtain an 'entitlement' for each gaming machine you are approved to operate.

In mid-2014, regional boundaries associated with the club entitlement reallocation scheme were removed allowing clubs to source gaming machine entitlements from anywhere in Queensland. Transfer of entitlements between clubs can be on a temporary or permanent basis.

Entitlements may also be obtained from a government sale of club entitlements.

How to know when club entitlements are for sale

Each time a tender for club entitlements opens, the Public Trustee places an advertisement in The Courier Mail announcing the commencement of the tender. The advertisement states the number of operating entitlements available for sale in each region, the closing date and lodgement details.

Read Gaming guideline G07: Authorised sale of gaming machine entitlements for clubs for more information about selling entitlements.
