Tabcorp Issued Fines Over Gambling Advertisements

Australian gambling operator, Tabcorp, has been fined just over AU$14,000 after it was found to be in breach of law by promoting unregistered punters to participate in gambling activities.

The specific advert in question was this: “HEAD TO HEAD SPECIAL – KHABIB VS MCGREGOR – if your fighter loses by decision, bonus bet back up to $50”.

“It is a fact that problem gambling brings with it many social problems affecting not just the afflicted person but potentially also their families and the wider community,” Chief Magistrate Henson held.

“There is a moral and social obligation on the part of governments who seek to benefit from the taxation levied on this type of conduct to pursue the objective of reducing the fact of and impact from problem gambling. It is not surprising in that context that a dim view is taken of breaches of the law, whether they are deliberate or by reason of inadvertence,” the Chief Magistrate said.

 

SBC Joins All-Diversity Project

11:28 am ET - The All-in Diversity Project has signed a strategic deal with SBC (Sports Betting Community), which will enable it to communicate its drive for greater industry diversity to a much wider audience.

SBC is seen as one of the industry’s key information providers and organises the leading dedicated sports betting events in the industry, and is now joining All-In Diversity’s impressive list of Strategic Partners to help provide greater exposure to the issues surrounding diversity and inclusion.

The All-in Diversity Project’s mission is to be the central global resource for all things relating to diversity and equality - working together to create tools such as knowledge bases, workplace tool-kits, training initiatives, learning exchanges, interactive events and to support long-term impactful change across the industry.

As part of the deal, the All-in Diversity Project and SBC will be working closely together to educate and communicate how businesses can make diversity & inclusion part of their company fabric and how the gambling industry can make progress on these issues in the future.

Christina Thakor-Rankin, Co-founder of All-in Diversity Project with Kelly Kehn, commented: “We’re really pleased to be partnering with SBC and see this as a natural fit.

“Two years ago we spoke at their BOFCON event on the subject of new customers and engagement and focused on women and football as the next big thing in sports-betting. And with more and more emerging international markets it doesn’t stop at just gender. We look forward to working with SBC to push the discussion around diversity, equality and inclusion to cover all aspects of sports and betting.”

Earlier this year Thakor-Rankin also represented All-In Diversity on a panel discussion at SBC’s Betting on Football Conference entitled: ‘New Recruits - The business case for a diversified workforce’ with Pinnacle CEO Paris Smith, Head of Diversity and Inclusion at the British Horseracing Authority Rose Grissell, and Simon Banks, CEO at Star Recruitment.

SBC Founder and CEO Rasmus Sojmark commented: “Having known Tina and Kelly for some time, we are extremely supportive of their vision with the All-In Diversity Project. Workforce diversity is a particular problem in the sports betting sector, so if there is anything we can do to provoke discussions at our international events or growing industry news network, then SBC is happy to get involved.”
