Submission: Electronic gaming machine bet and credit limits

Publication date: 
June 2022

ACTCOSS has made a submission to the ACT Government’s review of electronic gaming machine bet and credit limits. We welcome the initiative as part of the ACT Government’s commitment to reducing gambling harm. It responds to a long-standing campaign by ACTCOSS, the Canberra Gambling Reform Alliance (CGRA) and other stakeholders in the ACT. However, this is only the start. ACTCOSS is also keen to see further actions including the introduction of mandatory pre-commitment in all venues, the banning of poker machine operations between 2am and 10am and further reductions to bet and load-up limits.
