Technician responsibilities

A technician who is servicing or repairing a gaming machine must ensure the machine is connected to the CMS and is operational for gambling.

If you don't ensure that the machine is communicating with the CMS, an infringement notice of $1,100 or a maximum penalty of $11,000 may apply.

If you can't fix the gaming machine or restore connection to the CMS, give the reason why on the CMS connectivity certificate.

You can order CMS connectivity certificates, approved by Liquor & Gaming NSW, using this order form (PDF, 78 KB).
