Lottoland Says They are Here to Stay

Publishing: July 2, 2018

One of the leading online lottery operators, Lottoland claims that they will not leave their Australian players high and dry regardless of the fact that legislators have proposed a ban on online lottery services.

The Australian parliament officially approved the Interactive Gambling Act Amendment bill for the Lottery. This bill prohibits Aussie players from making or placing bets online. It bans them from receiving winnings online too. This applies to all lottery games, for example Keno.

Lottoland Says No to the Ban - Details

The new amendment bill was introduced in March 2018. It followed a persistent campaign by the local Australian lottery giant– the Tatts Group. Tatts Group was against online lottery casinos like Lottoland and accused them of cannibalising their lottery sales yet they fail to kick back the same revenue to Australia’s social causes.

The minister of communication, Mitch Fifield reported to the media that this bill would protect over 4 000 small businesses who offer recreational gambling or betting services. These small businesses include pharmacies, community clubs, pubs and newsagents across Australia. The amendment bill’s provisions are scheduled to be active about six months from now. However, Luke Brill, the CEO of Lottoland issued a statement to the media saying that the company is ‘here to stay’.

Lottoland recently announced that they have been contemplating to challenge the bill in court. The online lottery casino got their courage from a report in May 2018 where gambling operators in New South Wales were considering challenging the Tatts campaign based on the affirmation that Tatts used fabrication to gain public support.


There are so many changes that are happening in the realm of online casino gambling. The new bills being introduced may be in favor of the casinos or against. Will Lottoland manage to challenge the state’s verdict? Keep it locked at Australian Gambling Sites’ news page for all the latest updates.
