Australian government will introduce a new policy about the self-exclusion platform. Last week, Prime Minister of Australia noted that the government is working on official papers currently. Prime Minister Morrison said that it would be a new word in the Gaming industry. Australia is the first to introduce self-exclusion from gambling websites.
The voluntary process that may affect positively on the gaming industry
If someone can’t control himself and they are putting last pennies on Gambling, then it would be better to give him a rest. That’s precisely the main plan of the Australian government. In the next few weeks, the government will introduce Australian citizens with a new idea. As we already know, the program includes a voluntary process for citizens to exclude themselves from online gambling websites.
Do you know that according to official data from the government, Australians gamble 24 billion dollars every year? If we take a look at the per-capita basis, then Australians are the biggest spenders on Gambling. According to the latest official data, on average, one Australian is spending up to 1,300.00 Australian dollars.
A new initiative for Australian could be life-changing.
Minister of Families and Social Services said that the new initiative would be another motivation for Australians. Ruston noted that it’s a voluntary act, and no one is obliged to obey it. Ruston’s logic is simple – if you take a little time from Gambling, it won’t hurt your long-term life plans. The self-exclusion initiative is precisely a perfect getaway for people who want to take a short rest from the gaming industry. As you may know, the gaming industry is trendy in Australia. Keep in mind that Australian platforms are popular not only nationwide but also worldwide.
There have been many movements in Australia with one goal – to help online gamblers in Australia. The government decided to answer the changes most civilly. The voluntary nature of this initiative is something that most country’s governments would not be able to achieve.
Self-exclusion should work on Australian platforms
As we know, the government’s new policy could only be related to Australian platforms. If a casino or online betting website is based in Australia, then the company has to create a self-exclusion system for registered users. The Australian government has no legal sovereignty to take similar actions on foreign online gambling platforms.
