Class 4 Gaming

As per the Department of Internal Affairs website Operating a Alert Level 2 Class 4 Gaming can resume so long as the venue's primary activity is "offered and available".

Primary activity varies between venues and is recorded on the Class 4 gambling license, check your licence to see what your primary activity is (as a not-for-profit your primary activity cannot be the Sale and Supply of Alcohol).

Where your primary activity is in operation you can operate your gaming machines. Members coming to play the gaming machines can do so separately from the food and beverage operation. If a member is playing the gaming machines and wants a drink for example, they will need to cease the gaming activity and be seated, separated and served by a single server as per the Food and Beverage rules.

We recommend that if you are unsure about operating at Level 2 or have any questions regarding compliance under any Alert Level that you contact the DIA.

The DIA website is being continually updated with COVID-19 information for the Gambling Sector
