All gaming patrons at Crown Melbourne will now need to set time and loss limits before using electronic gaming machines after new mandatory pre-commitment laws officially came into effect on Thursday.

Under the enhanced regulations, which stem from the findings of the Finkelstein Royal Commission into Victoria’s casino license, anyone who reaches their set limit will no longer be able to use a gaming machine at Crown Melbourne for either a 24-hour or seven-day period, depending on what they’ve chosen.

Crown will be required to check the identity of patrons when they sign up for a membership card, which will be linked to a YourPlay account providing users with real time updates at the gaming machine and detailed activity statements on their play.
