All forms of legalised gambling in Victoria are regulated in accordance with the Gambling Regulation Act 2003, the Casino Control Act 1991 and the Casino (Management Agreement) Act 1993.

Casino Control Act

These Acts aim to ensure the probity and integrity of gambling activities in Victoria by providing community-wide benefits while minimising harm.

The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) is responsible for regulating the liquor and gambling industries.
