Australia: Internet gambling ban on cards in radical plan

21 October 2009

SYDNEY, Australia -- A radical new approach to tackling gambling addiction could see the Australian government place a $1 per bet limit on pokie machines and repeal the ban on Australian online gaming sites, The Courier-Mail has reported.

The upshot of a 630 page draft report of the year-long review appears to be a government intention to make gambling safer through harm minimization strategies.

The report, quoted in The Courier Mail acknowledges "Australia's ban on online gaming is not working, with Australians increasingly gambling abroad on sites with minimal consumer protection."

The final report carried out by the Productivity Commission is due for delivery by February 26.
