Where does gaming machine money go?
The money put into a gaming machine that is not returned to a player is called Gaming Machine Profits (GMP). GMP is distributed according to rules from the Department of Internal Affairs with at least 40% returned to the community and a similar amount paid to the Government in Duty and Tax, the remainder goes toward the cost of hosting and operating the machines, and societies that operate them.
