Lottoland Fights for its Survival in Australia
Lottoland is one of the lottery casinos in Australia that has vowed to bring the government of Australia before the court of law in the event that the parliament passes the bill to prohibit ‘synthetic lotteries’.
A meeting was held on Wednesday, on the 2nd of May and a statement was released that the lottery company’s business will soon go under extreme scrutiny. However, the CEO of Lottoland, Luke Brill reported to the media that he is willing to do whatever it takes to fight for his company, even if it means taking the government to the Supreme Court.
Details on Lottoland Legal Battle
The CEO of Lottoland is very confident. He believes that with more than seven hundred thousand players in Australia, there is no way that they are going to lose. In March 2018, the Australian government introduced yet another IGA Bill (Interactive Gambling Bill) but this time, for online lotteries. This amendment bill seeks to clarify some parts indicated in the gambling bill passed in 2001.
The new bill’s objective is to ban gambling sites like Lottoland from making, placing or receiving bets on the results of Australian lotto draws. The law is said to be effective six months after its passage. Mitch Fified, the Communications Minister in Australia, believes that this bill is the only way to get rid of ‘fake lotteries.’ Which, according to him, have undermined the long-established acceptance of lottery activities like keno and bingo products.
Thus far, Lottoland already has the support Chris Samartzis, the General Manager of the newsagent – Victorian Association and much more.
Of late, the Aus market has been unsteady because of the amendment bills that the Australian government keeps passing for the gambling sector.
