On 14 July 2011, the South Australian Government introduced a market priced trading system to allow eligible persons to purchase and sell gaming machine entitlements. Full details are prescribed in the Gaming Machines Regulations 2005.

An information guide which explains the Approved Trading System and how to submit offers to purchase or sell gaming machine entitlements in a Trading Round is available here:

When a trading round is announced an eligible person can submit a written offer to –

  • purchase a gaming machine entitlement by specifying the highest price that they would be willing to pay for the entitlement if their offer was accepted; and
  • sell a gaming machine entitlement by specifying the lowest price that they would be willing to accept as payment for the entitlement if their offer was accepted.

Proposed dates and results of trading rounds and a list of gaming machine entitlements held in South Australia are now available.
