The Gaming Technologies Association (GTA) has announced that four of its members have been conditionally approved to participate in an expanded cashless gaming trial in New South Wales. This trial will involve nearly 4,500 electronic machines.

In partnership with Liquor & Gaming New South Wales and the Independent Panel on Gaming Reform, the research aims to uncover changes in player attitudes and behaviors resulting from the use of cashless gaming technology. The study will examine factors such as session length, frequency of play, and levels of harm experienced, with the goal of reducing gambling-related harm.

There has been overwhelming interest from providers and venues volunteering to participate in the trial, surpassing expectations. Aristocrat, eBet, IGT, and Light & Wonder have been conditionally approved for the trial, pending the fulfillment of stringent cybersecurity requirements.

This follows the successful installation of Aristocrat Gaming’s technology on 36 machines at Wests Newcastle during previous trials. Overall, 28 venues, including a mix of clubs and hotels of various sizes, have been conditionally approved to take part in this large-scale trial.

CEO of GTA, Jinesh Patel, expressed the organization’s commitment to ensuring a fair and balanced approach to gaming technology in Australia. GTA is proud to contribute to the NSW Panel and is dedicated to the success of Australia’s first statewide cashless gaming trial.
