Australia: Social Services Minister doesn't want ATM limits for gamblers

19 February 2014

AUSTRALIA -- A rollback on imposing ATM withdrawal limits on cash machines in gambling venues has taken place in Australia, The Guardian reported.

The previous Labour government had introduced the measure as a proposal to tackle problem gambling under its pokie-reform platform, the report said.

However, the Social Affairs Minister issued a directive that instructs the gambling regulator to prioritize giving gambling venues an exemption from the limits, according to The Guardian report.

It appears possible that the increased economic burden that would be placed on ATM industry to comply with the regulations is behind the directive, the report said.
