A political battle is waging in Australia, and it appears as though the gambling issue will be at the forefront of who wins power in the next election. The Coalition made their strongest statement yet regarding gambling this week when they announced that a complete overhaul of the regulatory procedures could be on the way.
Clubs Australia, the most powerful gaming lobby in the country has been at odds with the current administration for several years. New safeguards against problem gambling such as limiting amounts that gamblers can lose in casinos have been met with resistance from Clubs Australia.
The Coalition has found this divide to be a rallying point for Australians who enjoy gambling as a form of entertainment. The Coalition claims that if they win power, they will suspend the gambling limit legislation, and dissolve the current oversight committee that regulates casinos.
