Betr Faces License Risk as New Breaches Emerge in Australia
Australian operator Betr faces license risk as serious new breaches emerge. Fines of over $50k have been imposed.
Australian sports betting operator, Betr, has landed itself in hot water following the discovery of two "serious" breaches of local regulations.
The company is already under scrutiny for breaching the rules in the past, such as promoting wagering products to a self-excluded person.
The recent issue that led to Betr being fined was its use of direct marketing to promote its content. The Racing Commission discovered that the company made unsolicited approaches just before its official launch, inviting potential customers to bet with Betr through phone calls made by its relationship managers.
The Racing Commission fined Betr a total of over $50,000 for the latest breaches, and warned that any further violations might cost the company its license.
Betr stated its commitment to following the rules, but the Commission expressed its disappointment with the operator for failing to prevent these breaches.
The Commission's decision serves as a warning to all gambling companies in the Northern Territory.
