Crown Melbourne to Have AUD $1,000 Spending Limit

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

The Australian state of Victoria has passed a change to its 1991 Casino Control Act, which will implement a AUD $1,000 spending limit for players per day.

The change was made in a bill, which is formally known as The Casino Legislation Amendment (Royal Commission Implementation and Other Matters) Bill 2022. It was introduced only a month ago and zoomed its way through the legislative process, making its way through Parliament.

Players will now be maxed out at spending AUD $1,000 per 24 hours at the casino, with the amount resetting after that period. The bill will also see poker machines requiring players to input how much they're prepared to lose before they start playing. The company has until the end of next year to implement the spending limits, and the end of 2025 to put the pokie policy in place.

Crown has been under scrutiny in recent years, as management was found to have acted inappropriately in operating their casino, and also faced troubles in the states of New South Wales and Western Australia.
