Covid-19's Forcing Australians into Reckless Online Gambling

During the pandemic, public places like pubs, clubs, and casinos have all been closed. As a result, almost 200,000 poker machines remain untouched for a while. From 15 to 25% of the poker fans could not proceed with their favorite gambling activities. In 2020, land-based facilities in Australia lost AUS$7.5 billion in revenue. This is the sum of money lost by gamblers in casinos, pubs, and clubs during the lockdown.

An escape from stress and boredom

For some poker fans, the lockdown has become a disaster. For others, it was an inconvenience that could be handled through online gambling resources. In fact, the functionality of online casinos is becoming more and more active. More and more people find it more flexible, interesting, and engaging. It gives them more space for acting. Once Australians had to stay at home, they received a great opportunity to deal with depression.

The list of Aussie mobile casinos Android, iPhone is getting longer and longer. Big gambling brands have realized the potential of online gambling. Whether it is raining or snowing outside, a person can stay at home and enjoy his favorite games. But this is where potential risks are hiding.

For high-risk gamblers, there may be a strong temptation to get carried away with immense opportunities for online gambling. Without seeing money in their hand, they may start spending everything they have on their debit card and then start doing the same with a credit card. The lack of limits in online gambling makes people go too far in their endeavors.

The so-called psycho-social stress is a driving force of high-risk and addictive gambling. By the end of the pandemic, there will be more than several stressful situations when people won’t be able to keep their emotions under control. For example, Fair Go Casino Australia with login in Australia can turn an online gambling into a pleasant adventure. However, the process needs to stay under control all the time.

New ways to encourage people to betting

In Australia, online gambling is officially forbidden. But it doesn’t stop gamblers from enjoying their hobby. The Australian government doesn’t allow the development of local online casinos, but it says anything about the functionality of offshore online casinos in the country. As a result, gamblers are free to join international resources like Online Casino Aussie. No need to say how big profit was made by offshore online casinos in 2020.

By the way, Australian bookmakers are promoting horse-racing activities. More obscure sporting events are being promoted, such as the Table Tennis Cup.

A transformation from pokies to online gambling does not cover the damages caused by the lockdown. But it will help brands carry out their gambling activities in an online format. Eventually, the revenues can be brought back to the previous level or even doubled or tripled in a matter of time.

Can we do something about it?

The federal government has been active in the management of online gambling in recent years, encouraging Australian regions to develop a consumer protection framework. It would make sense to integrate some new measures. The Australian Bankers Association recently encouraged the government to approve the use of credit cards in online gambling.

Allowing online gambling sites like OnlineCasinoAussie in Australia but placing them under strict regulations. This will take pressure away from local gamblers and local gambling brands that won’t have to hide from the government. One of the major acts of responsible society is to help people avoid potential harm without applying drastic measures.
