As part of the gambling reform package, certain licence holders operating gaming machines with banknote acceptors are required to operate a facial recognition system to identify barred persons about to enter a gaming area. 

Mandatory signage

As a licence holder, you must display the following mandatory sign at each entrance to a gaming area if facial recognition technology is operating. 

Optional signage

As well as the mandatory sign, a licence holder may choose to display any of the following language-specific or multilingual signs. These can be displayed either at the entrance to the gaming area or within the gaming area. 

The display of any of these signs should be representative of the general community where the licensed premises is located.

How to display these signs

In accordance with the Commissioner's specifications, these signs may be reproduced in printed form or displayed on an electronic screen as follows:

  • the sign must be reproduced in printed form or be able to be displayed on an electronic screen in the original form as downloaded from the CBS website. No modifications or additions to the form or content of the sign is permitted
  • if it is to be reproduced in print, the sign must be printed in colour at a size equivalent to A4 (210 x 297mm) or more
  • if it is to be reproduced by display on an electronic display, the sign must be displayed in portrait form on a screen with a diagonal measurement of not less than 21.5"
  • the sign must be reproduced in printed form or displayed on an electronic display at sufficient quality to ensure it is clearly legible
  • the sign must be displayed so that the information contained is clearly visible to the general public
  • in the event that any facial recognition technology signs are displayed on a rolling electronic display in conjunction with any other in-venue messaging, a static version of the mandatory sign must also be displayed at each entrance to the gaming area.
