Ladbrokes Withdraws QuickCall from Australian Market


The controversy over Ladbrokes, William Hill and Bet365 taking advantage of a loophole in Australian betting laws to offer online in-play bets continues and Ladbrokes has pulled its QuickCall product from the market.

According to The Australian newspaper, the Australian Communications and Media Authority had direct communications with all three companies stating that players turning on their computer-mobile microphones as a work around for current online gambling laws is not legal.

Australia's free-to-air television industry has announced that it will not broadcast advertisements for QuickCall or similar products until their legal status is confirmed.

In June the Australian Communications and Media Authority contacted the Australian Federal Police to investigate the legality of the tactics used by the bookies but the results have not been released to the public.

    This become in quite a big issue in Australia now and although the bookies deny to be violating the law in any manner, it's still a very controversy and probably that's why Ladbrokes withdraws this feature from the market. Will be interesting if William Hill and Bet365 will do the same or they will continue to offer this product and face the possible consequences later on.
