Keno is a rapid-draw game in which a set of numbers is drawn through a random number generator from a pool of numbers. The numbers are then posted electronically in venues. A single 10-year licence to conduct and distribute Keno games in eligible hotels, clubs and wagering outlets throughout Victoria was awarded to Tabcorp Investments No.5 Pty Ltd, and commenced on 15 April 2012.
The Minister for Consumer Affairs, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, the Hon Marlene Kairouz MP, has approved Terms of Reference for a review of the Keno licence. The Terms of Reference set out the high level framework for the conduct of the review.
The review will be conducted by the Gambling Licensing Program in the Department of Justice and Regulation, in consultation with the Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Department of Treasury and Finance.
