Liquor & Gaming

Liquor & Gaming NSW (L&GNSW) is responsible for the regulation of liquor, wagering, gaming and registered clubs in NSW. We recognise the need to achieve outcomes for the community and balance responsible industry development with community safety expectations and harm minimisation.

Our supervisory approach appreciates current and emerging issues. We minimise the burden on responsible industry by driving best practice and promoting voluntary compliance, while targeting more serious wrongdoing with escalating enforcement action.

L&GNSW’s role includes providing strategic advice, program evaluation and executive support to the NSW Government. We are also responsible for the compliance, enforcement and licensing functions of the liquor, wagering, gaming and clubs industries.

L&GNSW proactively engages with key stakeholders and the broader community and is committed to consistent and transparent decision-making in the development of regulatory policy and structures that encourage best practice.

To support the organisation's role in regulating and supporting the relevant industries in NSW, L&GNSW operates in two streams:

Regulatory Operations Branch

​The Regulatory Operations Branch includes oversight of all compliance operations, investigations and licensing issues. Other units within this branch are responsible for revenue assurance and integrity, and customer experience.  ​

Regulatory Policy, Strategy and Support​​ Branch

The Regulatory Policy, Strategy and Support Branch oversees policy and legislation, implementation and improvement and organisational governance. It also manages stakeholder engagement with the community, liquor and gaming industries and other stakeholders. In addition to this, the branch also provides support to the Responsible Gambling Fund, the Clubgrants Fund, and the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority Board.  ​
