Responsible Gaming

Akarana Community Trust Promotes Responsible Gaming

Akarana Community Trust Limtied would like to be acknowledged in the gaming industry as a successful operator of gaming machines with an emphasis on compliance and integrity.

The vast majority of patrons who support our Trust by playing the gaming machines at our licensed venues recognise that the occasional flutter is harmless fun. However, we acknowledge for a few people gambling can be addictive, and that this may cause social or economic problems for those people.

With this is mind the Trust wishes to be a leader in the industry by introducing a responsible gambling programme into all of our tavern and bar sites.

Our venue personnel are trained to recognise the signs of problem gambling and a self-exclusion process is available for any patrons who wish to ban themselves from the gaming environment. Please see the Self-Exclusion page for more details

The Trust has a Harm Minimisation Policy which is on display in all our venues.Please click here to view this policy.
