AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY:  ACT Attorney-General Gordon Ramsay said the Casino (Electronic Gaming) Act 2017 will introduce mandatory pre commitment and $2 maximum bet limits.  The Act caps the number of machine authorisations the casino can apply to operate at 200. "This legislation sets the framework for the casino to begin acquiring existing gaming machine authorisations. Minimising the harm that comes with electronic gaming machines and maximising the benefits to Canberra of this change are the goals of the new framework," Minister Ramsay said.
