In August 2008, after consultation with the Casino licensee, the Commission resolved to adopt a policy in respect of Burswood Entertainment Complex (now known as Crown Perth) in relation to the placement of ATMs and the amount of money that can be withdrawn in a 24 hour period. The policy was fully implemented in January 2010. It allows for ATMs to be located on the same level as the casino main entry, close to the location of the security officers and under existing CCTV coverage but limits access to encourage patrons to have breaks in play as part of harm minimisation requirements.

Policy position

In respect of Crown Perth,the following provisions apply to ATMs:

  1. ATMs are prohibited from being located in the area covered by the casino gaming licence;
  2. ATMs are prohibited from being located within 40 metres (walking distance) of any entrance to the gaming floor, unless the ATM has a withdrawal limit of $400 per customer, per day (24 hours).
