Australia is a nation of keen punters – according to recent findings about 70 per cent of Australians participated in some form of gambling in the past year. Gambling takes many forms, including lotteries and ‘scratchies’, electronic gaming machines (‘pokies’), casino-based table games, sports wagering and online gaming. Latest estimates claim about 115,000 Australians are classified as ‘problem gamblers’ with a further 280,000 people being at ‘moderate risk’. Gambling can seriously affect many aspects of an individual’s life; it can also affect family members, friends and carers. This title looks at the latest government initiatives to address the negative social and economic impacts of problem gambling, including the regulation of growing access to online gambling. The book also provides detailed advice on dealing with personal gambling issues, including how to identify the warning signs, and where to get help. Can you beat the odds, before they beat you?
