Operators of Australian gambling houses knocked the ground out from under their feet

The coronavirus has affected absolutely all spheres of life and the gambling industry is no exception here. So, what happened to many gambling houses in Australia during the epidemic, we will tell in this article.

The World Betting and Gambling Council criticized the actions of the Australian authorities, who introduced a new restriction on the operation of casinos. The Australian government has ordered that gambling houses should close at midnight to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Officials have again knocked the ground out from under the feet of casino operators, who throughout 2021 resisted the inexplicable decisions of the authorities related to the prevention of coronavirus, the Betting and Gambling Council noted.

The organization stressed that the next restriction is disastrous for gambling houses, whose operators did everything to ensure sanitary safety.

“Casinos do most of their business after 22:00, and forcing establishments to close at midnight is economically harmful. This decision of the officials shows a complete misunderstanding of the gambling industry, “The Betting and Gambling Council said.

Since, the organization explained, the future fate of hundreds of employees of Australian gambling houses becomes unclear; in addition, the income of casinos from which the state receives taxes will be reduced.

At the same time, NewsOfGambling has previously written that in South Africa, due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the authorities demanded that gambling houses suspend their work. What awaits Australia is anyone’s guess.
