With effect from July 2023, Tabcorp’s MAX will monitor all electronic gaming machines in Tasmanian pubs and clubs.
Australia.- MAX, Tabcorp’s gaming services company, will monitor electronic gaming machines in Tasmanian Pubs and Clubs from July 2023 under a new 20-year licence. The company already monitors more than 115,000 electronic gaming machines across Australia.
Under the terms of the agreement, Tabcorp will contribute AU$1m to Gambling Harm Research in Tasmania and hire Tasmanians to execute the project.
Adam Rytenskild, Tabcorp managing director and chief executive officer, said: “We’re really looking forward to working closely with the Tasmanian Government to maintain and enhance the integrity of electronic gaming machines in pubs and clubs throughout the state.
“MAX is the largest monitor of gaming machines in Australia and we are committed to providing a world-class service that upholds the integrity of gaming in Tasmania and ensures all machines operate in compliance with regulatory requirements.
“A priority for us is ensuring Tasmanians are employed as part of this agreement and that we invest substantially to assist in the research of potential gambling harm.”
He added: “It’s also another strong outcome for Tabcorp following the demerger. In the 3 months since the demerger, Tabcorp has commenced work with the Star Entertainment Group to transition their Sydney Casino onto our NSW monitoring platform and we have decided to sell our non-core eBet company.”
