Understanding gambling law in Australia

Gambling is generally defined as betting money or something of real value on the outcome of an event. Trade promotions are also subject to gambling legislation in Australia. Organizers must obtain a license from the relevant regulator before engaging in these activities. Three significant licensing procedures are currently underway in Victoria and Western Australia, two of which are in keno. Tabcorp has a kenoplay license in Vic, which expires on April 14, 2022. The current Victoria gambling and betting license ends on August 31, 2024. The present license holder was required to pay the government a fee upfront to obtain the license.
