Latest NSW gaming machine data released

Liquor & Gaming NSW has issued its latest gaming machine data updates as part of the NSW Government’s commitment to boost transparency on gambling activity in local communities.

The data reports can be viewed on our website and include:

  • Gaming machine numbers and net profit for each NSW local government area (LGA)
  • Net profit rankings for all NSW venues with gaming machines
  • Gaming machine tax paid to the NSW Government for each LGA.

The latest reports cover 1 June 2018 to 30 November 2018 for clubs and 1 July 2018 to 31
December 2018 for hotels. Due to seasonal factors, gaming machine profits are historically
higher in the second half of each calendar year.

Compared to the previous six-month period:

  • The number of gaming machines in operation fell by 300 in clubs and by 3 in hotels.
  • The number of club gaming venues fell by 7, and the number of hotel gaming venues fell
    by 40.
  • Net profit rose by 4.1 per cent for clubs and 13.4 per cent for hotels.

Compared to the same six-month period in 2017:

  • The number of gaming machines in operation fell by 565 in clubs and by 184 in hotels –
    an overall fall of 749.
  • The number of club gaming venues fell by 17, and the number of hotel gaming venues
    fell by 59.
  • Net profit increased by 0.5 per cent for clubs and 6.4 per cent for hotels.
