Please note:

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data: https://www.vcglr.vic.gov.au/resources/data-and-research/gambling-data/gaming-expenditure-venue through joining it with gaming venue locations from the VCGLR's interactive map of Victoria's gaming venues: https://geomaps.vcglr.vic.gov.au/Gaming/ extracted on the 8th of March 2019. Therefore venues that have either changed their trading name or cease to exist as of the 8th of March 2019 will not be included in this dataset, despite being active in the year expenditure was recorded.
  • EGM Numbers: Average number of operating EGM's at the gaming venue during the month. This figure is consistent with the average entitlement applied to the EGM as per tax calculation.
