Australian State Seeks Online Betting Restrictions

The New South Wales state government Select Committee into the impact of gambling on the New South Wales public has made a suggestion regarding online gambling, suggesting stronger regulations.

The suggestions would have harsh consequences for Australian punters, as it would bar financial institutions such as banks from processing online betting related transactions between punters and offshore sites.

The goal of the recommendations is to help prevent problem gambling, and mainly focuses on land based betting, although the online betting restriction somehow snuck through.
