Licences for gaming industry employees

The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) is responsible for issuing approvals and licences to individuals who are seeking employment in Queensland's gaming industry.

You will need a licence to work in the gaming industry as a:

  • gaming nominee
  • gaming repairer
  • key monitoring employee
  • wagering key person
  • lottery key person
  • Keno employee.

Note: You are no longer required to hold a gaming employee licence to work in the club and hotel industries. OLGR will no longer accept applications for this licence; however, individuals who wish to work in the gaming industry and carry out gaming duties or tasks must still complete a responsible service of gambling (RSG) course.

This guide provides an overview of the different types of licences required for employees in the gaming industry. It also explains the application process for licences, including information about any supporting documents required and the process of verifying your identity (if you decide to apply for a licence online).
