The Launch of an Amazing New Service - A Legal Gaming Machine Trading Place for NSW


Get the word out that you have Gaming Machines, Entitlements and Stuff for sale ! Read on .........

As you know, there's really been no legal outlet for you to advertise that you have gaming machines or related equipment for sale. Well now there is and it is totally legal ! No longer do you have to have a ‘middleman’ searching for you at considerable expense. There is a special area on the Chat Forum where you can anonymously let other venues know that you have gaming machines or related equipment for sale. Other Forum members can then message you privately if they are interested in discussing purchasing the equipment from you. You can negotiate privately and only reveal yourself to the person interested in purchasing. This is a restricted area for the Gaming Industry only…… that is how it ensures that all Regulations and Legislation is adhered to. There is a small yearly fee to be involved in this special area, but it is well worth your while !


Spread the word — THIS IS A FIRST AND IT MAKES LIFE EASY AND SAVES YOU A MINT ! (Due to the Gaming Legislation and set up of gaming machine ownership in other States and Territories, we are unable to offer this service outside NSW)
