Tabcorp fined over $370,000 for allowing underage gambling

Tabcorp was fined over $370,000 for being unable to prevent minors from gambling in several Victorian establishments.

The Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission initially charged the corporation in May 2023, and the company later entered a guilty plea to 43 charges in Melbourne Magistrates Court.

A 17-year-old was discovered by the commission to have gambled at 13 Tabcorp locations on several occasions between May 2022 and October 2023. The company acknowledged that it had improperly supervised its electronic betting terminals and neglected to stop the minor from gambling.

Tabcorp engaged in extremely significant violations, according to Annette Kimmitt, the chief executive of the commission, as a magistrate imposed fines of up to $370,417 on the corporation last Thursday.

Kimmitt commented:

“These failures undermine the integrity and safety of the industry,” she said in a statement. “Gambling providers and their staff are on the frontline of our efforts to prevent underage gambling. “It is their duty to rigorously check IDs and supervise gambling activities to ensure minors are not able to access these services.”
