AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY:  A new advisory panel will be established to provide even greater oversight and transparency of decisions about the casino, after new laws passed the ACT Legislative Assembly today. The Casino and Other Gaming Legislation Amendment Act 2018 will require the Minister to establish a Casino Advisory Panel in a range of circumstances. It will provide oversight to the ownership and gaming operations of the casino and carefully consider what is in the public's interest. It will also advise the Government on any future application to operate gaming machines or fully automated table games.
