The Australia Institute made a submission to the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs’ inquiry into inquiry into online gambling and its impacts on problem gamblers. It consisted of a short response to the most relevant terms of reference (points (f) and (i)), as well as two longer papers, Gambling on games and Polling – Advertising on TV, which had already been published elsewhere.

More regulation of gambling-like activities in games is needed, but we recommend starting with the national classification scheme. There is broad popular support for banning gambling advertising on TV, which would help limit children’s exposure.
