Only gaming machine repairers licensed by the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) are authorised to install, alter, adjust, maintain or repair gaming equipment at licensed premises.
OLGR has received reports from some licensed repairers that gaming machine cabling has been adjusted by persons not licensed to carry out the work. In some instances, this has resulted in gaming machines needing to be fully rewired.
Allowing a non-licensed repairer to access your gaming machines may constitute an offence under S.187 of the Gaming Machine Act 1991. Not only could you be liable to pay a fine, but you may also face expensive repairs if your gaming machines are damaged.
There are exceptions to the above requirement, which allow for some installations, etc. to be carried out by non-licensed repairers. Please familiarise yourself with these exceptions in S.11 of the Gaming Machine Regulation 2002.
