How much of a problem is online gambling?
Gambling can be found everywhere in the online world, preying on the vulnerability of many Australians.
Despite raised awareness to prevent the push of gambling, statistics still show an increased number of gamblers, with 60 percent of Australians gambling every week. Commercial advertising chances the exposure of gambling from a young age, running the risk of normalising it. This calls for more action to spread messages that gambling can lead to serious financial, legal and relationship problems.
Nic was joined by the director of the University of Sydney Gambling Treatment and Research Clinic, Professor Alex Blaszczynski to discuss the issue of gambling and the services that are available to help.
