The AHA NSW is currently considering the full detail of the State Opposition’s plans for gaming in NSW, the Association’s Director of Liquor and Policing John Green said this afternoon.
“While this policy would make significant changes to many areas of hotel operations, beyond the scope of the Crime Commission report, we support an evidence-based approach including trials and assessment of cashless gaming.”
“The NSW Crime Commission Report has found no widespread evidence hotel gaming machines are being used to clean ‘dirty money’ and we have never been supportive of an unproven, untested and un-costed cashless gaming system.”
“While we are still considering the implications of this wide-ranging policy, it is clear NSW hotels will be adversely impacted by accelerated gaming machine forfeiture and a significant reduction, from $5,000 to $500, in the cash input limit.”
