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 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 December 2018 to 31 May 2019 for clubs and 1 January 2019 to 30 June 2019 for hotels.

Compared to the previous six-month period:

  • The number of gaming machines in operation fell by 206 in clubs and by 39 in hotels.
  • The number of club gaming venues fell by 9, and the number of hotel gaming venues fell by 34.
  • Net profit fell 3.9 per cent for clubs and 6.3 per cent for hotels.

Compared to the same six-month period in 2018:

  • The number of gaming machines in operation fell by 506 in clubs and by 42 in hotels – an overall fall of 548.
  • The number of club gaming venues fell by 16, and the number of hotel gaming venues fell by 74.
  • Net profit fell by 0.03 per cent for clubs and rose by 6.2 per cent for hotels.

Due to seasonal factors, gaming machine profits are historically higher in the second half of each calendar year.
