Regardless of whether you’re playing poker, pokies, bingo, table games, lotteries or the occasional scratch card, responsible gambling means to be in control of how much time and money we spend gambling. Gambling is to be treated as just another form of entertainment in a lifestyle well-balanced with other healthy activities that are within your control. As with many other activities in our lives, gambling comes at the financial expense of our earned money so it is vital that we do not spend unreasonable amounts of time and money and give attention to other aspects and responsibilities in life.
This site only lists casinos in Australia and like any business, these businesses are providing gambling in Australia in order to make a profit, albeit with fairness and on the right side of the law. Therefore care should be taken on the player’s side about looking for information on making responsible decisions regarding expenditures related to gambling and the providers should make this information readily available and accessible.
We should only spend what we can afford and stop when the entertainment value stops.
