Cochrane mentions Lottoland sponsored the Mitchell Street Million Dollar Mile last weekend. She says Federal Minister for Communications Mitch Fifield wrote to Chief Minister Michael Gunner, demanding to explain why the Northern Territory Government decided to grant Lottoland a licence. She adds One Nation Leader Pauline Hanson and Senator Nick Xenophon are also demanding for Lottoland to be banned from operating right around Australia. She says Livingstone is a gambling expert. Cochrane and Livingstone discuss Lottoland. Livingstone says Lottoland offers bets on the results of lotteries in Australia and around the world. He adds Lottoland is registered in Gibraltar. Cochrane and Livingstone tackle claims by Australian politicians, suggesting Lottoland is killing off family-owned news agencies.
