Victorian community clubs offer members a variety of entertainment including different forms of gambling. The types of gambling most commonly found in community clubs are electronic gaming machines, wagering, keno, bingo and raffles.
CCV regards these forms of gambling as legitimate leisure and entertainment activities, enjoyed by many club members throughout the state. Revenues to clubs from gambling provide significant social and economic contributions to community development and employment.
In Victoria, the day-to-day regulation of gambling is the responsibility of the independent statutory authority, Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation.
