Political parties in Australia will be left without contributions from the casino

Gambling News and Lucky Stories

Major Australian operator Crown Resorts Limited said it would no longer support political parties with voluntary so-called political contributions. The reason was the ongoing verification of compliance with the company’s license in two Australian states – Victoria and Western Australia. The media called the operator a generous benefactor for his large payments to political forces in the past few years. It was reported that Crown Resorts Limited gave a large amount of money to support the incumbent’s election campaign and an even larger donation to the opposition Liberal Party. Experts comment that no political party in Australia should accept any donations or sponsorship from a gambling operator. It is reported that the authorities of the states of Victoria and Western Australia are ready to immediately revoke the permissive license for the Crown Resorts casino if the investigation reveals the involvement of the operator in money laundering. It should be noted that with the expansion and development of gambling, tax deductions from the industry significantly replenish the budgets of the countries in which they operate. For example, at the end of 2020, the amount of quarterly profit only from slot machines in New Zealand amounted to a record amount of 181.4 million US dollars over the past 14 years, increasing the amount of taxes paid. Meanwhile, in the Australian state of New South Wales, authorities are proposing new gambling controls.
