Record up one third on last year �200,000 Windfall by the mail special investigator from a careful Check of bookmakers accounts it is evident that the government is going to receive another huge Windfall from betting taxation this financial year. The figures reveal that with less than two months to go and Revenue from the Goodwood Handicap Adelaide cup and King s cup meetings still to be collected the number of bets has increased by More than one third also that there has been a substantial in crease in turnover. In its report for 1934-5 the betting control Board fixed the total number of bets Laid at almost 22 millions although the number of stamped betting tickets purchased by bookmakers during that year was nearer 25 millions. It save the total turnover As �4.660,547. For a treasurer anxious to balance Bis budget these figures must have been cheery enough but he is approaching the end of the current state accounting period in the Happy know ledge that the increase in this tax yielding betting business has continued to an extraordinary degree. Investigations show that the Community s indulgence in licensed Gam Ming is Likely to produce the follow ing results for the year ended june to next turnover of More than five Mil lion pounds handled by Book makers. Number of bets Laid with Book makers about 30 millions. Taxation Rake off for the govern ment amounting to nearly �200,000 counting totalisator tax As Well As taxation on turnover and betting tickets. Oak Bank Day Peak bookmakers declare that betting transactions on Oak Bank Day easter monday this year reached colossal figures. The proprietor of one metro Politan betting shop whose bets aver age 2,000 for a saturday throughout the year wrote 2.500 tickets on easter monday. Licensed betting in South Australia on that Day reached its Peak the Story of How the surprising yields from betting Revenue have influenced the budgetary position of South Australia is a Romance in government finance. For 1933-4 in which the licensing of bookmakers applied for Only the latter half of the year the state deficit was �843,816, but the state accounts closed at the end of 1934-5 with an unexpected surplus of �36,226. The government owed that surplus to its betting legislation which contributed �134.968 to Revenue from turnover tax and stamp tax. Allowing for totalisator tax the yield to re venue from betting was �161,596, and the government had the additional Benefit of increased collections of amusement tax paid by race goers. This financial year the government has budgeted for a nominal surplus of �1338. Indications Are that it will finish the year with a tidy sum on the right Side of the Ledger thanks once again to gambling. In spite of the �18,000 in concessions to race clubs a fixed amount for which the Premier or. Butler made due allowance in framing his Esti mates it will be surprising indeed if the government s total profits from racing trotting and coursing do not touch the �200,000 Mark by the end of june. Apart from the effects on state re venue the astonishing increase in bet Ting has had repercussions in other directions. Board s cautious policy the betting control Board is under fire for having allegedly encouraged gambling by the facilities for of the course betting it has provided in exercising its Powers under the betting act. Its last report showed that at june 30, 1935, there were 394 licensed bookmakers operating compared with 370 at june 30 1934. The number of registered premises for oif the course betting was 296 an increase of 52 in a year. It is claimed by the Board that these increases Are mainly due to the pro vision of additional betting facilities in country districts. The next report should not show the same increases because the Board has virtually called a halt in the licensing of bookmakers especially for Bettin in premises. I am told that for some months past it has been almost impossible to secure a licence for new betting premises even in the country. It appears that the Board s attitude is this it definitely will not Issue any More licences for betting shops in areas that it considers Are already adequately served and where the turnover of existing licensed premises is not unreasonably High. It will however still favourably consider applications for the licensing i premises in districts where it considers there is room for Competition or where the nearest bet Ting shop is an unreasonable distance away. Al. R. Of from this it a be assumed that the Board believes that saturation Point has almost been reached in the pro vision of off the course betting facilities. One result arising from its attitude is the inflation of the value of existing betting businesses. Some betting shops have recently changed hands on pay ment of a substantial sum for Good will. Landlords cannot Hope to profit unreasonably however because under its rules the Board has Power to fix the rental of the premises. Another Point on which the Board has been criticised is the enforcement of the Rule compelling All registered premises to open on specified Days for betting on South australian and inter state racing fixtures. The Board s answer to this is that betting shops Are licensed to provide a Public need and that there is the same obligation for them to open to fulfil that need under the terms of their licence As for hotels.
