General Information
 

Gambling Addiction
Problem gamblers and poker machines


  • One in six people who play the pokies regularly has a serious addiction.
  • Problem gamblers lose around $21,000 each year. Thatís one third of the average Australian salary.
  • Some poker machines can be played at extremely high intensity Ė a gambler could lose more than $1,500 in just one hour.
  • Young people (18-24 year olds) spend more on poker machines than any other age group. Many adult problem gamblers report having developed gambling problems during their teenage years (source: Delfabbro, P, Gambling Research Australia, A review of Australian Gambling Research, August 2008, p61).
  • Three-quarters of problem gamblers have problems with poker machines. Itís even higher for women Ė in 9 out of 10 cases poker machines are identified as the cause of problems for women (source: Delfabbro, P, August 2008, p67).


Impact of problem gambling

  • Problem gamblers are six times more likely to be divorced than non problem gamblers.
  • Problem gamblers are four times more likely to have problems with alcohol and four times as likely to smoke daily than non problem gamblers.
  • Children with parents who are problem gamblers are up to 10 times more likely to become problem gamblers themselves than children with non gambling parents
