The responsible gambling for individuals and broader community
The responsible gambling for individuals means they may gamble for pleasure and entertainment but are aware of their likelihood of losing, and understand the associated risks. They exercise control over their gambling activity. Responsible gambling occurs in balance with other activities in their lives and is not causing problems or harm for themselves or others.
Responsible gambling for broader community including gambling providers, governments and sporting associations requires shared responsibility for generating awareness of the risks associated with gambling, creating and promoting environments that prevent or minimise problem gambling and being responsive to community concerns around gambling.
