|Betting terminals in Australia|
A new betting terminal placed in Melbourne allows bettors to open an account and bet online with a bookmaker based in another state.
According to a report in Australian Breeding & Racing magazine, the Melbourne racing community is outraged, as it undermined the exclusive off-track betting license of the tote operator Tabcorp.
A reaction by the local government is awaited.
