William Hill Australia to Continue Offering ‘Click to Call’ Feature

William Hill Australia will continue to offers its ‘Click to Call’ betting feature after the Australian Federal Police (AFP) announced that it will not pursue an investigation against the operator for breach of Australia’s online gambling laws.

The ‘Click to Call’ feature allows players to place a bet by technically making a phone call, but practically with the click of a mouse. The Australian Media and Communications Authority (AMCA), in August, turned to the AFP Interpol, claiming that the feature is illegal according to the 2001 Interactive Gambling Act that restricts in-play betting to bets made over the phone.

The AFP have announced that they will not proceed with the investigation and William Hill has stated that they will now promote the ‘Click to Call’ feature.

“William Hill has received formal confirmation that the Australian Federal Police will not be investigating the complaints referred to it by the Australian Communication and Media Authority regarding its ‘in-play’ product that allows customers to bet live during a game with just a few taps,” announced Tom Waterhouse.

“This is a great outcome for Australian punters who will no longer be forced to bet in-play via illegal offshore bookmakers which pose a huge threat to both consumer protection and the integrity of Australian sport.”

The investigation has now been handed back to AMCA and despite the ruling, it has announced that it will respect the AFP decision. AMCA has announced that it will now concentrate its efforts on helping former politician Barry O’Farrell in his review of the Australian Interactive Gambling Act.
