Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

The Casinos industry is characterised by high barriers to entry. Several key factors such as regulation, the dominance of existing players, capital investment requirements and licence fees restrict new enterprises from entering the industry. Casinos operate under very strict legislative and regulatory conditions. In all states and territories, legislative bodies regulate and oversee the operation of casinos and licensing requirements. These authorities also restrict the number and location of casinos. Entry into the industry is usually via a government tender for a licence. The successful operator is then offered an exclusive clause for a period of 15 to 20 years, where no other casino licences are issued by the government in a defined geographic area.
