Gambler leaves child in car
The Adelaide Casino has banned a woman for three months after she left her 11-year-old son in a car. At first, she wanted to enter the gambling parlor with her son. After casino officials refused the child to enter the gambling venue, she left him inside a car.
SA senator Nick Xenophon now proposes stronger measures for misbehaving casino patrons. "Casino bans should also incorporate conditions with regard to gambling therapy for banned gamblers to avoid backsliding. Longer bans should be imposed in case of severe misbehavior, one year at least. However, the Independent Gambling Authority should determine the ban length," Xenophon said.

. The woman previously suffered from gambling problems.
