Clubs Australia and AGA Partner to Combat Unregulated Gambling

Clubs Australia, the body that acts as an advocate for 6,5000 licensed clubs across Australia and New Zealand, has partnered with the American Gaming Association (AGA) to combat illegal online gambling websites.

Described by Clubs Australia Executive Director, Anthony Ball, as the “Wild West” when it comes to unregulated and unlicensed online gambling operations, the two companies are making waves by taking an international approach to the issue. Ball went as far to claim that these illegal operators could be using their sites for money laundering or funding terrorism, but at best they are unsafe and not generating tax revenue.

It is believed that Americans spend around USD4 billion and Australians spend around AUD1.2 billion on illegal gaming websites each year.

“It’s well past time to take the threat of these illegal gambling operations seriously,” stated Ball. “The proliferation of illegal online gambling is a scourge that needs to be tackled by governments worldwide, in association with legal and regulated gaming operators. Put simply, these sites are unethical and unsafe. There are no age verification checks, no harm minimisation measures and the revenue they generate goes to off-shore tax havens – not back to the community.”

According to Sara Rayne, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at the AGA, their “partnership with Clubs Australia will help shine a spotlight on shady outfits that don’t create jobs, contribute vital tax revenue, protect players or serve as strong community partners.”

They will do this by working together to provide information of illegal operations to the various government officials. They also hope to encourage their governments to impose more laws on illegal operators.

This partnership is part of the AGA’s “Stop Illegal Gambling – Play it Safe” initiative.
