Australian Government to Extend Gambling Advertising Regulations to Toys

Australian Government to Extend Gambling Advertising Regulations to Toys More stringent gambling advertising regulations have been presented by the South Australia provincial government, which would extend to selling toy based on the theme or resembling anything gambling related.

Consumers Minister Gail Gago said that new regulations would require the sellers of toy poker, mini roulette wheels and blackjack products to post signs warning that the products are not meant for children.

"These seemingly innocent games could lead to gambling more broadly," Gago said. "This government will not sit back and watch children become gambling addicts."
  • Government, all governments spend too much time and money, expend too much effort creating problems where there are none. Lets let children be children. Stop pointing out what they should not be doing because they weren't even interested until you made such a big deal about it.
  • I really hate nanny state regulations like this... I mean seriously how harmful can selling a toy roulette wheel be in real terms? I played a whole bunch of card games as a kid and I can't say that had anything to do with what eventually led me on to gambling for real money later in life... I didnt even start until I was 30 years old....
