ATM limit for punters a 'safety risk'

Non bank-aligned automatic teller machine companies have warned that punters' security will be put at risk if a $250 daily limit is applied to all ATMs in gambling venues, as proposed by the federal government.

In a submission to an inquiry on the government's pokies reform bill, the ATM Industry Reference Group said there were safety implications in the proposal.

Cardholders who had reached their withdrawal limit may seek to access more cash outside the licensed venue.

''Especially after dark, this increases the risk to their safety,'' the submission said.
