11 April 2006

AUSTRALIA -- As reported by the Australian: "New Gambling Minister Paul Caica has been urged to 'walk the walk' and commit to introducing a smartcard system to tackle gambling problems.

"…When asked about his views on a smartcard system to impose spending limits on gamblers and track their poker machine habits, Mr Caica told The Advertiser on Monday he would not rule anything out.

"…Welfare groups yesterday urged Mr Caica to hold a discussion of key stakeholders to discuss a smartcard system's implementation.

"…Australian Hotels Association general manager Ian Horne said the proposal had already been rejected by the Government but the AHA would be happy to discuss it further."
