The arcades have a mix of coin-operated slots, penny push, crane grab and video games, most of which are not age restricted, but some arcades have age restricted gaming machines.
The adult gaming centres can be stand-alone or zones within a centre, but should be clearly marked by signage, gateways and supervised by trained staff.
How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help amusement arcades?
We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We can visit amusement arcades attempting to enter age restricted gaming areas, place bets or collect winnings. We can provide the industry standard signage and provide specialised training for full time and casual staff.
Why do I have to get this done?
Amusement Arcades will be subject to local licensing restrictions which are likely to place strict obligations on both premises owners to take steps to prevent the underage gambling or collection of winnings. The penalties for failing to comply can be substantial including the forced closure of the premises.
What posters and materials do I need to be compliant?
You may be required to display certain posters or warnings in relation to access to gaming machines at the premises. Our shop has all of the materials, posters, badges, signs and policies that you need to comply with local laws.
