On 27 February 2014, the ACCC issued a draft determination proposing to allow Lottery Agents Queensland (LAQ) to continue to negotiate on behalf of its members for 5 years.  The authorisation covers collective negotiations with Golden Casket Lottery Corporation and other potential future Queensland lottery providers.

At present Golden Casket is the only licenced lottery provider in Queensland and LAQ currently negotiates lottery agent agreements on behalf of its members with Golden Casket. Golden Casket’s exclusive licence to conduct lotteries expires in 2016 and LAQ has sought authorisation to also collectively bargain with any organisation granted a licence from 2016 onwards.
