Responsible Gambling Code of Practice

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Under section 112L of the Gaming Control Act 1993, ​the Commission must establish codes of practice for responsible gambling. The Responsible Gambling Mandatory Code of Practice for Tasmania was introduced in March 2012. It was developed to minimise harm from gambling in the Tasmanian community and sought to make gambling environments safer. The Code ensures Tasmanians have clear information about gambling so that they can better understand and make informed choices about whether to participate.

On 29 April 2024 a new version of this Code will take effect, incorporating several miscellaneous changes and clarification to some existing requirements.

​The Code and gambling harm

Nationally, gambling harm is characterised by difficulties in limiting money and/or time spent on gambling, which leads to adverse consequences for the gambler, others, or for the community.
