Interactive Gambling Regulations 2001 – Department of Communications and the Arts

On 21 September 2019, the Department of Communications and the Arts remade the Interactive Gambling Regulations 2001 made under the Interactive Gambling Act 2001 under section 61BGA, without significant amendment.

Section 7A of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001 prohibits advertisments for interactive gambling.

The Interactive Gambling Regulations 2001 specifies types of advertisements that are not considered a designated interactive service advertisement, and therefore exempt from this restriction. 

Consistent with Government’s best practice regulation requirements for sunsetting instruments, the Department has assessed the regulations as operating effectively and efficiently. Therefore, a Regulation Impact Statement is not required for remaking this instrument.

The Interactive Gambling Regulations 2019 commenced on 21 September 2019.
