NSW deputy premier and small business minister John Barilaro and racing minister Paul Toole on Thursday said they have “serious concerns” about “synthetic lotteries” that accept bets on lottery outcomes and are “considering options to restrict the operation of synthetic lotteries”.

“The conduct of synthetic lottery operators may breach existing wagering legislation, and the NSW government is currently considering options to restrict betting on these lotteries in NSW,” Toole said in a joint statement.
