Pokie king strongly Protests on ATM Ban 2003-06-10
An Australian gaming corp. has announced it's decision to stop working with the National Australia Bank in order to make a point on the decision to take out the ATM from the casinos in Australia. "It is not good for business. Clients come, play, spend money, get into the game and want to withdraw more money and we do not provide them with that service. It is definitely bad for business. If the National Australia Bank decided to ban the gaming venues, we will probably have to work with a different company which will provide us with that service. "Their deal with NAB was worth a lot of cash and by criticizing the bank's choice to take the machines outside of the casinos and hotels means a lot. The company named "�The Mathieson Group" and worth at least $300 million, held about 2000 poker machines in Victoria and Queensland alone! "We have already received several offers from different banks to take responsibility over supplying and maintaining the machines in the revenues. If they want to take out their ATMs they should get out of gaming, full stop. "Bruce Mathieson told the Herald Sun. "Now I am very interested in knowing what is their opinion on investing in gambling operations in Australia. You can't be at both sides of the room at the same time." He added. Another company which decided to fight back is The Australian Hotels Association, which directed its members to think twice before signing any contract with the NAB. In contrast, Gaming minister John Pandazopoulos greeted the decision NAB took but also added that he will look into the subject in order to inspect it from a different point of view.
