Gambling in Australia
Australia is home to some of the highest rates of gambling in the world. It's estimated that over 80% of Aussie adults engage in gambling of some kind on an annual basis.
Whilst continued efforts go in to regulating the industry and helping to steer vulnerable users away from addiction, there's no denying that with the betting industry contributing almost 8% of tax revenues, gambling is here to stay.
It's well known that Aussies are limited when it comes to gambling online. Many popular online casinos are banned, meaning the market for offline gambling - in the street, in casinos and in clubs - is huge.
