This is surprising as the gambling industry in Australia is still relatively new and young, this does help show the Australian government that the online gambling industry is progressively becoming more popular in a short period of time.
The amount of online gamblers who made a wager last year was only 14%. When you compare the new 21% that was revealed after this study was conducted to the 14% of 2013, it is a massive jump in player activity. Experts say that Australia owes a great deal to the operators who made rigorous advertising campaigns that helped bring in new online gamblers. No one is sure as to how much tax revenue Australia brings in every year from online gambling due to the massive growth that is still occurring in the Australian online gambling industry.

The former Mayor of Denver, a city within the USA has spoken out about online gambling. Wellington Web has been against online gambling for years and was even hired on by Sheldon Adelson is secret. His job was to warn as many Americans as he could that online gambling would cost some Americans their jobs.
The former mayor claims that online gambling will target low income areas of the USA and would give underage children the opportunity to gamble when they shouldn’t. Mr. Web has been under fire though as his state just legalized Marijuana, most online punters and online gambling advocates has asked the former mayor how online gambling could be worse than what the majority of the country considers to be drug which they just legalized.
The back lash towards the former mayors statements have been said by many. Online punters said that parents can simply shut down their computers in order to not give their children access to online gambling. Even gamblers in low income areas have come out saying that it’s their choice on how they spend their money and that their actions can potentially have consequences.
Mr. Webb has gone as far as trying to abolish online gambling as a whole in the USA. He has put multiple acts up for congress and wants to restore is the long lasting Wire Act protection. The Wire Act allows for the USA government to do as they please. They can listen to your phone calls, watch what you do on the internet and so much more. The Wire Act allows for the USA to find any illegal online gamblers.
Mr. Webb is an angry ex mayor who can’t stand the change that has come before him. It is unclear as to what will happen with online gambling in Colorado but we expect that online gambling will become legal in the state as Colorado wants to make as much money as possible, every state does.
