Internet gambling changes possible following Australian Productivity Commission report - 26th October 2009

SYDNEY, Australia - A new approach to tackling gambling could see the Australian government place a $1 per bet limit on pokie machines and repeal the ban on Australian online gaming sites, News Limited reports.

The 630 page draft report of the year-long review appears to be a government initiative to help 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 release on 26th February at this stage.

The Casino News Media and Media Man Australia network will report on more details as they come to hand.
