Gaming Employee

The government has ceased the requirement for persons to obtain Gaming Employee licences to work in the industry. However, individuals who wish to carry out gaming duties or tasks must still complete a Responsible Service of Gambling course.

You must note the following requirements prior to starting your application(s):

  1. Each application requires specific supporting documentation which you may upload or send in the mail.
  2. You must attempt an online identity verification check which may require you to provide your driver licence number and/or passport number. If your identity is unable to be verified online you will be required to mail or email your identification documentation.
  3. You must pay the prescribed application fee. All fees are non-refundable.
  4. Renewal applications must be lodged and paid for prior to the expiry date of your current approval or licence; if your approval or licence has already expired, you must submit a new application.

The supporting documentation page contains information on the documentation required for your application type.
