    Default Program could potentially detect risky online gambling

    The Victorian government hopes to develop a program that can tell when a player's online gambling patterns may be harmful and would allow wagering companies to put a stop to punters who go overboard.

    Such algorithms have the potential to be an important tool in encouraging responsible gambling in the wagering market, as they allow for the wagering provider to intervene with players who are at risk, or for modifications to marketing to gamblers based on their risk levels.
    However, there are doubts this could actually work.

    An industry source said wagering companies were willing to work with the successful researcher and the government but were not convinced a computer algorithm could be developed to show harmful or problem online gambling.

    I might be cynical, but I just see this as another way to get punters walking into a TAB to place their bets rather than play online.

    Yes I believe so. They are trying for long to get the philosopher's stone that will show them the most profitable players
    We are all bloodsucking ticks, hungry, devious
    each one latched on to the ass of the previous
    when the last and the first latch on it can be shown
    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own

    What a waste of tax payers money. Would be far better supplying all homes etc with fibre as promised with the NBN. Instead of the crappy copper phone lines most people ended up with.
