Following are some key facts about gambling, online and offline, in Australia. All statistics and facts contained on this page are from the Productivity Commission’s final report into gambling, released in June 2010. Six hundred thousand Australians play the pokies at least once a week and 95,000 pokies players are problem gamblers. Problem gamblers contribute 40 per cent of the money put into poker machines. They account for 75 per cent to 80 per cent of problem gamblers.
Electronic gaming machines are the dominant source of gambling revenue. This is despite the fact that most Australians do not play them at all. There were 198,300 electronic gaming machines in Australia in 2009. 1,500 per gambler and a share of household consumption of 3. 1500 or more in an hour. The harms from problem gambling can include suicide, depression, relationship breakdown, lowered work productivity, job loss, bankruptcy and crime. For each problem gambler, several others are affected — including family members, friends, employers and colleagues. The Productivity Commission report states the net benefits could be much larger if governments reduced costs through effective prevention and harm minimisation policies. In 1986-87, the gaming machine and casino share of spending on gambling was 40 per cent but by 2006-07, that figure rose to 75 per cent.
Casinos derive 78 per cent of their revenue from gambling, clubs gain 61 per cent of their revenue and hotels 28 per cent. In 2008-09, gaming was provided by 5,700 pubs and clubs. Victoria has the highest tax dependence on gambling, at 13 per cent, and Western Australia has the lowest, 4 per cent. It is estimated to be 30 per cent higher today. In 2009, around 20,000 people were employed in casinos. There are strong grounds for these concessions to be significantly reduced, though this would require phased implementation to facilitate adjustment by clubs. It found that online gambling websites offer gamblers better prices and more variety. It noted that the Australian ban on online gaming has reduced its growth, but has driven customers to offshore websites.
