Apply for a gaming machine permit (for a licensed premises)

Gaming machine permits are issued to premises that:

  • offer very low-stakes and prize gambling
  • provide a primary function that isn’t gambling

This applies specifically to premises with alcohol licences where alcohol can be sold without food. Applicants must specify the number of machines they are applying for.

Please see the fees and charges page for further details on permit costs.
