Description of this Electronic Book

Almost 7 million Australians are estimated to be regular gamblers, spending money on one or more gambling activities each month. Australian gambling losses amounted to $24 billion in the past year alone. What are the actual odds, myths and facts behind the chances of winning on poker machines, racing, sports betting, lotteries, and at casinos and online? What are the warning signs and harms of problem gambling, and what help is available to people affected by it? What restrictions has the government placed on gambling marketing, much of which is aimed at children and young people, across television and radio broadcasts and online? This book reveals the various major forms of gambling activity and expenditure in Australia; it also explores the issues involved in dealing with problem gambling; and investigates gambling advertising and its impacts on young people. Why are Australians the world's biggest gamblers? Are we really winning against the odds?
