TAB's are set to get face recognition cameras installed

Australia’s biggest bookmaker Tabcorp are set to roll out a nation wide installation of artificial intelligence-powered video cameras in their TAB betting outlets to prevent underage gamblers.

The TAB has been trialling the cameras in outlets across Melbourne over the past three months and have been satisfied with the results.

The successful trial now means Tabcorp are set to install the cameras in over 400 TAB outlets across Australia in what they say is a prevention method for underage gambling in their stores.

TAB outlets currently have no method of preventing underage gamblers betting with cash on their EBT’s which has prompted this move however it could also be used to alert TAB workers to restricted (winning) punters.

The cameras work by identifying persons walking into the TAB stores and if that person looks to be under the age of 25, a worker in the store would be alerted so they can approach them and identify their age.

The information was first published on SMH on Thursday morning and punters on social media have been very skeptical as to Tabcorp’s true intentions with the technology with many believing it has nothing to do with underage gambling rather than profiling punters, so they can stop betting syndicates and notable winners betting with cash who would otherwise be restricted on their online products.

The TAB app already uses facial recognition to allow punters to login to their accounts without a password, it is unknown how much data is stored but the TAB could already have a large database of punters profiled.
