Organisation calls for a National Gambling Regulator


New research from the Gambling and Social Determinants Unit at Monash University reveals Australians have lost more than $11.4 billion to poker machines just this past year.

The research, over a 30 year period, shows just how much Australians have lost financially to gambling with figures amounting to over $308 billion dollars.

Organisations such as the Alliance for Gambling Reform propose a National Gambling Harm regulator to limit the amount of money to poker machines as well as regulate the overall harm gambling has on people.
