Hefty penalties for illegal gambling are headed to the Legislative Assembly come November.
The Gambling Amendment Bill will be among a number of pieces of legislation up for debate on the LA agenda.
The new bill proposes increased penalties for a range of general gambling offences including; the use and ownership of premises for gambling, the publication of lottery numbers and dealing with money resulting from gambling activities.
Fines for offences under the proposed law are upwards from $2, 500 to $20,000.
Apart from increased fines those breaking the law could face jail terms ranging from six months to three years, depending on the offences committed.
