South Australia studies online gambling’s affect on children

Jay Weatherill, premier of South Australia, said his state will “explore the legal and policy implications for the government of gambling-like behaviour among children” ahead of considering restrictions on websites and apps. “We’ve bent over backwards to make sure that we don’t let children go anywhere near the sights and sounds of gambling,” he said today. We have a whole lot of very strict regulations about that in our pubs and clubs, yet online they have access to this stuff.”
