In April 2019 Australians were asked about their opinion of how the gambling industry should be controlled. Australians agreed that the government has a role to play in restricting people's levels of gambling and that gambling in Australia should be more tightly controlled.
Less than half of Australians agree or strongly agree that our gambling laws are properly enforced. 12 per cent of Australians strongly disagree that gambling laws are properly enforced.
Four in five Australians agree or strongly agree that gambling in Australia should be more tightly controlled, and only 3 per cent strongly disagree.
62 per cent of Australians disagree or strongly disagree that the government has no right to restrict a person’s gambling.
A third of Australians agree or strongly agree that gambling activities are advertised responsibly.
