VGCCC to fine BlueBet for unauthorized advertising

The VGCCC has recently announced that it has pressed charges against BlueBet for advertising illegally.

The operator’s alleged violations took place over the course of a two-week period in early September last year. There were three illegal advertisements that were displayed on various billboards on two of the state’s major highways, the Princes and Western Freeways. All of the billboards in question were located within the suburbs of Melbourne, which is the Australian state’s largest city.

The VGCCC added that the company faces a total of 43 charges for the alleged violations, each of which will call for a 120 penalty point fine. When the failures took place, each of the aforementioned penalty points was worth just under 185 Australian dollars, meaning that if the operator is found to be guilty of the charges presented by the VGCCC, it could face a fine of up to 954 thousand dollars.

“Gambling firms looking to advertise their services in the state of Victoria are required to comply with all of the relevant regulations. When unauthorized adverts are found throughout the state, we take a strict approach to ensure compliance by using all of our enforcement capabilities.”

commented the Regulatory Services Director of the VGCCC, Jason Cremona.
