Australian authorities raid underground gambling establishments

February 15, 2024 World Crime & Legal

The Department of Local Government, Sport, and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) states that it was thought in April of last year that two illegal gambling businesses operating without the required permits or permission were discovered. Notably, as a result of these actions, the Gaming and Wagering Commission (GWC) reportedly withdrew the casino employee licenses of three Crown Perth staff.

A representative for Crown confirmed that the employees had been let go. In addition to receiving warnings for infractions, one of the organizers of the illegal games was charged with money laundering and property laundering.

During the searches, a large amount of cash, gaming systems, and other goods were taken by investigators. Investigations are still underway. More cash and gaming materials were discovered during a follow-up search request at another residence.

Anyone engaged in unauthorized gaming operations faces the possibility of an inquiry and sanctions, according to a warning sent by the DLGSC. Similar illicit businesses have been discovered all throughout Melbourne, suggesting that there is a larger problem than just one.

According to Inside Asian Gaming, increased regulatory enforcement in several Australian jurisdictions—motivated by a desire to demonstrate toughness toward gambling—may have unintentionally contributed to the growth of illicit gaming enterprises. The increasing rivalry for regulatory enforcement may lead to an increase in the popularity of illegal gambling in Australia.
