The Australian Parliament has approved new legislation banning the use of credit cards for online betting

Kai Cantwell, CEO of Responsible Wagering Australia (RWA), said: “This is an important measure to protect customers and their loved ones, making it easier for people to stay in control of their own gambling behaviour.

“It will complement the existing offering of safer gambling account management tools by RWA members to customers to help them stay in control of their betting.”

Cantwell expressed disappointment that lotteries and keno are exempted from the ban, with lotteries being the most prevalent form of gambling in Australia and most commonly accessed by people in low-socio-economic communities.
