Casinos worry as betting goes online
Gaming industry fears losing out, pushes governments to allow Canadian websites

A trend towards betting on websites instead of going to casinos has the Canadian gaming industry wondering how to get a cut of the new online action.

Canadians now spend about $1 billion per year gambling online. But since privately owned betting websites are not legal in this country, most of the revenue goes to international companies, according to the Canadian Gaming Association.

"We as an industry and government and regulators have to come to grips and catch up and bring in a regulatory environment," said Paul Burns, a spokesman for the association, which is hosting the 14th Annual Canadian Gaming Summit in Calgary.

Gaming online is allowed in Canada if the site is operated by a provincial government lottery agency, Burns said. But so far only a few including the B.C. and Atlantic lottery corporations have offered web-based services.

But legalizing private gaming websites in Canada could entice children into gambling, according to David Hodgins, a gambling addiction expert at the University of Calgary.

"It's certainly something we have to be really cautious about. What we do know is the younger somebody begins to gamble the more likely they are to get into problems," he said.

With this, online casinos and even land based should prove to the gamblers that their games have much better odds.
