E - E - Easy

The great thing about the Productivity Commission's draft report is how easy it will be for industry to implement its suggestions.

In 2009, Aristocrat Gaming, Australia's leading manufacturer announced that it had received an order for new games and an additional 1,000 interactive video terminals from Norsk Tipping, In Norway, there is a system whereby gamblers must use a card as a part of a system of compulsory pre-commitment with strict limits.

What this means, is that Australia's leading manufacturer is not only experienced with adapting games to pre-commitment systems but is able to see a profitable business in providing such games and hardware terminals.

So don't be taken in by any argument the implementation of pre-commitment systems will be the end of an industry.
