Summary

Part of a package of three bills in relation to a national scheme for gaming machines, the bill: provides for precommitment systems for gaming machines; enables registered users to set a loss limit; requires gaming machines to display certain warnings; limits daily withdrawals from automatic teller machines located in gaming premises (excluding casinos) to $250; requires that new machines manufactured or imported are capable of supporting precommitment; establishes a regulator to monitor and investigate compliance; provides for enforcement measures; establishes an Australian Gambling Research Centre within the Australian Institute of Family Studies; and provides for the Productivity Commission to undertake two inquiries.
