On 7 March 2016 new class 4 Game Rules came into effect replacing the previous 2006 rules. The new rules were much shorter and better ordered to reflect who the obligation is aimed at, for example, rules relating to players and playing, rules relating to the venue operation, and rules relating to societies.

The review of the Class 4 Game Rules in early 2016 streamlined and simplified the requirements to operate Class 4 gaming machines and resulted in a number of rules around cash management and routine gaming procedures being removed or amended. Although some requirements were removed, it is recommended that certain procedures continue so that venue staff and societies can be assured of the integrity of their gaming machine operations.

Although these Support Guidelines are not mandatory, they will help venues and societies, particularly with cash reconciliation and handling patron complaints.
