Have Your Say - Review of the Lotteries and Art Unions Act 1901​

In August 2016, Liquor & Gaming NSW released a discussion paper that invited feedback about a proposed model for community gaming and trade promotions regulation in NSW.

Community gaming refers to lotteries, raffles and games of chance conducted for fundraising purposes, while trade promotions are free-entry and operated by businesses for a promotional purpose.

The review considered whether community gaming and trade promotions activities should continue to be regulated and if so, determine the best approach to do so.

The review did not seek to impose new requirements or reduce the level of protection for players or reduce the integrity or oversight of the sector.

The consultation period for public submissions closed on Friday 26 August 2016.

Next steps

Liquor and Gaming NSW is preparing legislation to give effect to the findings of the Final Report. Further information on the expected timetable for the legislative process and subsequent implementation will be issued through this website.
