The Northern Territory is a fully regulated online gaming licensing jurisdiction. Northern Territory online gaming licenses have no prescribed annual or other fees beyond a 4% negotiated tax rate. The Territory may charge an application fee but no fee has been set at this time. There are no restrictions for offshore operators applying for an online gaming license. There is no limit on the number of online gaming licenses issued but only those applicants considered to be of the highest credibility will be considered.
The Interactive Gambling Act allows Australian licensing authorities to enter into new Operators’ Agreements with online gambling licensees, within defined parameters. The
Federal legislation simply precludes Australian gambling operators from offering their services to Australian residents. In addition the Act allows the federal government to prevent an Australian-based operator from offering services to residents from designated overseas jurisdictions whose legislation prohibits the provision of interactive gambling services. This latter aspect requires that the overseas jurisdiction not only legislates against Internet gambling but that jurisdiction must also apply to the Australian government to have its residents excluded from registering with Australian operators.
The Department of Treasury and Finance is responsible for the Gaming Control Act insofar as it is related to taxes and levies for the Northern Territory of Australia. The Gaming Control (Internet Gaming) Regulations came into force on January 1, 2010.
