Age Restriction Policy



The EB Expo is an MA15+ event and will feature restricted R18+ content.

Tickets cannot be purchased by customers under the age of 15. A parent or guardian can purchase a ticket for the minor and themselves if accompanying the minor at all times during the event. Valid photo ID (a current driver’s license, passport or proof of age card) may be required at time of purchase.

All guests will be age checked and will require valid photo ID (a current driver’s license, passport or student proof of age card) when entering the EB Expo precinct. Guests may be spot-checked during the event for valid photo ID by security.


Guests under the age of 15 years must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian at all times inside the EB Expo precinct. If a minor is found unaccompanied inside the EB Expo precinct the police may be called.


Guests over the age of 15 but under the age of 18 will be given an MA15+ OKAY TO PLAY wristband. Guests over the age of 18 will be given an R18+ OKAY TO PLAY wristband. The OKAY TO PLAY wristband will allow access to MA15+ and R18+ content inside the EB Games Expo.


Guests without relevant identification will be unable to play MA15+ and R18+ games.

MA15+ content is restricted to guests 15 years and older. Although an adult, parent or guardian can consent for their underage minor to experience MA15+ content, exhibitors reserve the right to censor MA15+ regardless of consent. Content that will be censored to guests 15 years and younger will be advised on the EB Expo website. It is for this reason that a valid MA15+ OKAY TO PLAY wristband is required in order to access MA15+ content.


R18+ content is restricted to guests aged 18 years and over.

R18+ content will operate within an enclosed environment and a valid R18 OKAY TO PLAY wristband is required to enter these R18+ restricted areas.


Some EB LIVE presentations may contain MA15+ and restricted R18+ content. Guests will be checked for the corresponding OKAY TO PLAY wristband in order to access the Arena and view the restricted content.
