Liquor & Gaming NSW has issued its latest gaming machine data updates as part of the NSW Government’s commitment to transparency on gambling activity in local communities.
The data reports can be viewed on our website and include:
- Gaming machine numbers and net profit for each NSW local government area (LGA)
- Net profit rankings for all NSW venues with gaming machines
- Gaming machine tax paid to the NSW Government for each LGA.
The latest reports cover 1 June 2019 to 30 November 2019 for clubs, and 1 July 2019 to 31 December 2019 for hotels.
Compared to the previous six-month period:
- The number of gaming machines in operation fell by 116 in clubs and increased by 78 in hotels.
- The number of club gaming venues fell by 14, and the number of hotel gaming venues fell by 37.
- Net profit increased by 4.06 per cent for clubs and 13.83 per cent for hotels.
Compared to the same six-month period in 2019:
- The number of gaming machines in operation fell by 322 in clubs and increased by 39 in hotels.
- The number of club gaming venues fell by 23, and the number of hotel gaming venues fell by 71.
- Net profit fell by 0.02 per cent for clubs and rose by 6.58 per cent for hotels.
Due to seasonal factors, gaming machine profits are historically higher in the second half of each calendar year.
To further improve transparency Liquor & Gaming NSW will publish quarterly gaming machine data reports on its website, replacing the current six-monthly reports. For more information on gaming machine data, view our fact sheet (PDF 677.6 KB).
