Buy gaming machine entitlements (GME)
You need a GME for each gaming machine you operate. The government isn't creating any new entitlements, so you have to buy them from other clubs or negotiate through a GME broker.
GMEs are bought and sold in a 'block' of 2 or 3. Each block sold requires 1 GME to be forfeited.
This means if you buy 3 GMEs, you surrender 1 GME and you can operate 2 gaming machines. Buying 2 GMEs allows you to operate 1 gaming machine.
There's no forfeiture if clubs are transferring GMEs between related clubs and both venues are located in the same local government areas (LGA).
