The Federal Families Minister of Australia, Jenny Macklin, has aired cocerns regarding the growing availability of online casinos and other instruments for wagering, as well as the growing demand for online gambling as a form of entertainment.
According to the statistics provided by The Courier-Mail, Australians will spend as much as $1 billion on online casino gambling this year alone. And the Minister fears that this could result in a large scale problem throughout the country.
As the Australians choose offshore-based sites to circumvent banning for their entertainment, they get bigger problems because there is no protection of privacy for the customers as well as out-of control gambling by players.
At the moment the federal gambling is still insisting on continuation of online gambling ban.
