6-6 ACMA to Block Illegal Offshore Gambling WebsitesReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Australia’s telecom watchdog is going to block access to illegal gambling websites hosted offshore. The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) will investigate suspect sites and, if unable to take enforcement action, order internet providers to block them.

The chair of ACMA, Nerida O’Loughlin, said the new laws were a valuable additional weapon against illegal online gambling.

“There is little to no recourse for consumers engaging with these unscrupulous operators,” O’Loughlin said.

She said 65 illegal companies had left Australia since ACMA began enforcing new rules against offshore sites in 2017.

The communications minister, Paul Fletcher, said the sites accounted for about $100m in lost tax revenue each year.

“Too often these offshore operators are defrauding Australians and their websites typically provide very few, if any, harm-minimisation controls,” Fletcher said.

Française des Jeux (FDJ) has become an official partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The company will operate a licensed lottery programme from 2020 to 2024 with games that will expand as the Olympics take place. FDJ was the first company to support Paris’ bid to host the 2024 Olympics, and that’s why it decided to launch a new game.

“We have not forgotten that FDJ was the first partner to show a strong interest in our Olympic bid. That is why we have been working together to drive our project forward: creating an instant game to support the bid, carrying out joint initiatives to promote gender equality in sport, and more. I am delighted that our journey together is continuing,” Paris 2024 President Tony Estanguet said.

“Collaborating with the biggest sports event in the world is a real opportunity for FDJ and our 25 million customers, as well as our retailer network and employees. Our past contributions to the world of sport all led to this current commitment to get everyone involved in Paris 2024 and thus contribute to this great sporting and societal project,” Stéphane Pallez, FDJ chairwoman and CEO, said.
