Online Casinos Have No Responsible Gambling Policies
An Australian gambling addict wants to recover his losses with two offshore casinos. Online Casinos Have No Responsible Gambling Policies.
Blake Barnard lost AU$300,000 ($201,500) while gambling with online casinos registered in Curacao. He lost roughly AU $100,00 of his own money and $150, 000 of the money belonging to his mother with multiple sclerosis. Barnards is considering taking legal action against the casino operators. The online gambling industry is not taking responsible gambling seriously.
Barnard reported the online casino websites to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). Luckystar is among the group of 652 websites submitted for blocking to internet service providers (ISP). The operators have a way around this by utilizing mirror sites. LuckyStar asked Barnard to provide an ID upon registration. The casino does not have know-your-customer policy.
