Venue Best Practice Guide

Gaming venues who provide funding to a local sporting club that has signed the responsible gambling charter are required to implement relevant elements of the Venue Best Practice Guide. The Guide features examples of innovation and best practice currently being used in some gambling venues to meet the requirements of their Responsible Gambling Code of Conduct.

These practices demonstrate to customers a true commitment to creating a safer gambling environment. Venues can use the guide to benchmark their own practices and identify areas for improvement.
