The government issued a statement today which outlined the slow progress of reforms to minimise harm caused by normalising gambling withing the community.
Advance SA have twice introduced measures which have shown to reduce problem gambling and they have been opposed by both Labor and Liberal parties in Parliament. TWICE!
Advance SA wanted to remove EFTPOS facilities in gaming areas. South Australia is the only place in the world which allows this and it's proven that the more access to cash, the worse the outcomes are for problem gamblers.
If the major parties were serious about tackling problem gambling, they would have supported these changes.
