Online Gambling to Be Put Under the Microscope

The House of Representatives' social policy and legal affairs committee launched the inquiry into online gambling on Sep. 15. The committee is concerned about the increasing reach of online betting platforms into Australians’ lives and the exposure of children and young people to gambling advertising. The definition of “gambling service” should be amended to include additional gambling-like activities such as simulated gambling in video games. Liberal MP David Coleman said the issue was worthy of further work. Independent MP Kate Chaney said a gambling advertisement is shown every two minutes on free-to-air TV.

Online gambling inquiry on the cards

Online gambling will be investigated by a parliamentary inquiry. The committee is concerned about the impact on people with gambling problems. It will also look at how effective advertising restrictions are at preventing children from being exposed to gambling products. There are also concerns about gambling advertisements shown during live sports broadcasts. MP Kate Chaney, who sits on the committee, said she had heard heartbreaking stories of loss from her West Australian electorate. Liberal MP David Coleman said the issue was worthy of further work. He said a gambling ad is shown every two minutes on free-to-air TV.
