The NSW Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing has announced important changes to gaming machine laws in the state that came into effect Saturday (Jan 31).

It includes a new local impact assessment process to replace the social impact assessment process, changes to where gaming machines can be placed within a venue and the conversion of amusement devices into gaming machines, and the introduction of a 15 per cent cap on multi-terminal gaming machines.

The new regime will also usher in monthly meter readings, new requirements for prize-winning cheques, the abolishment of free entitlements and new regulations governing the dispatch of promotional material.
