| Australia’s legislature is trying to pass legislation stopping online casinos from operating outside the country.|
Proposed plans by Australia’s Legislature to ban the country’s online casinos from operating overseas have been met with criticism by the gambling community. Senator Lyn Allison is determined to pass the bill that will be debated in the Senate next week. She says "I think there are moral questions associated with introducing a ban in your own country but allowing operators to make profits from others offshore. "
However, Chris Downy from the Australian Casino Association says Senator Allison''''s changes do not make sense. "That would be a disadvantage to our companies, the millions of dollars that have been spent on research a development will just go down the drain," he said
