Gambling may be legal
The Australian government has announced its interest in reviewing the option to further liberalize the laws about the gambling industry and online gaming on its territory, reports an association of players from that country.
If implemented this change, local players would achieve a greater degree of protection, and additionally have access to more games and online gaming options. One of the most important issues to be considered is that of sports bets while they are being broadcast live. At the time, this option only exists through mobile options in person. Additionally, poker might also be liberalized.
The objective here is to achieve alignment of legislation in this field with those that control the way results in sets of pre-agreed. To review the issue globally, has been passed to the Media Authority to monitor communication and online gambling and establish measures to protect the industry.
The current government’s position on online gambling is not sufficiently clear and the players and operators could really benefit from a much more defined strategy.
For example, although it is illegal for Australians to place bets online and play online casino games, it is illegal for operators to offer such services to Australians. According to estimates, this industry is quite large, as in 2008, the total money spent on gambling reached nearly 800 million Australian dollars and now, could be $ 1 trillion each year.
On the topic of sports, online gambling is permitted, except those related during live games. Sports’ betting has grown steadily over the past ten years, generating global revenues of 400 million Australian dollars.
It is clear that regulation will generate lots of profits for those interested in participating in such operations in the near future. The players associations frowns these possible plans, and expects them to materialize soon.
These will certainly draw a lot of attention from the media in the next couple of months, as many are extremely interested in seeing how this develops. If most of the government authorities authorize online gambling, poker and sports betting, this could be a tremendous change for the entire population of Australia. Gambling is now one of the most popular activities worldwide and it seems as if legalizing it is the only choice left. Prohibiting people to have fun this way is absurd and this is why the laws in many countries are changing very rapidly. The Australian government will have the final call in this decision and it looks very promising for everyone who enjoys these sorts of activities, as they really do generate a lot of money in taxes.
