From February 6, 2012, the Victoria Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) is responsible for regulating the liquor and gambling industries. Previously, liquor and gambling were administered and regulated by separate bodies – the Director of Liquor Licensing and Responsible Alcohol Victoria administered and regulated the liquor industry while the Victorian Commission for Gambling Regulation administered and regulated the gambling industry. Gambling decisions will continue to be made in a commission-based decision-making structure.
The VCGLR regulates the casino, electronic gaming machines (pokies, slots), wagering, Club Keno, interactive gaming, bookmakers, public lotteries, trade promotion lotteries, and community and charitable gaming (such as raffles and bingo).
