Politicians request tighter controls
A report has been submitted by Australia's joint Select Committee on Gambling Reform in which it asks for more research on online sports betting, at the same time suggesting that a ban on promoting live odds at sporting venues and during event broadcasts should be introduced, along with tighter controls.
It has been specified by the committee, which is headed by independent MP and anti-online gambling politician Andrew Wilkie, that sports betting in the country has become quite a big industry, worth some A$790 million a year. In an interview, the committee deputy chairman, Nick Champion, also expressed his concern about the sports betting issues, stating that they have 'surreptitiously' crept into Australians' lives.
As for the specifics of the committee's recommendations, they include the formation of a national independent research institute on gambling, the development of an education campaign, a ban of gambling advertizing during times when children are likely to be watching television, and the introduction of tighter controls on credit betting.
