It seems that there will be new gambling regulations to be implemented in Victoria, Australia. This is primarily due to the fallout of the former Victorian gambling regulator. Fran Thorn is the newly appointed chairperson being a gambling regulator in Victoria. So, from January 2022, Thorn will be in her office for 3 years.
Before, Thorn’s position was a Secretary of the Department of Health. And now, she will be going to handle the VGCCC or the Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission. The question is, what will be the future of the Victorian gambling industry under Thorn’s management?
New Casino Regulation Plans in Victoria, Australia
Here are what to expect on the new casino jurisdiction in Victoria:
1-Additional oversight of the dedicated department
The VGCCC will now let go of handling the regulation of liquor in the state. Through that, the organization will be able to focus on casino and gambling management.
2-Imposition of more regulatory changes
Players and gamblers should expect a major reform in Victoria. With the new VGCCC, there will now be better monitoring of the land-based casinos in the state.
3-Transitional changes of Australian gaming
New gambling initiatives were introduced by gambling regulators in order to regulate more advertisements. One example of this is the Reclaim the Game already imposed in New South Wales.
