In Australia, new warnings will soon be on all online gambling advertisements. This is to try to stop people from gambling. The new rules will start in April 2023. Companies must tell gamblers about the risks and where to get help. Some of the new taglines are ‘Chances are you’re about to lose’, ‘Think. Is this a bet you really want to place?’, and ‘What are you really gambling with?’

The warnings will be on TV, radio, apps, websites, and social media. Some ads will also tell people to get help from Gambling Help Online. The warnings will change every 12 months so people don’t get bored of them.

Social Services Minister Amanda Rishworth said that more and more people are gambling online and losing money. She hopes that new laws will help stop this problem.

More people gambled online in 2020 than in 2019. This is because it is easy to gamble online and people can do it without other people knowing. The founder of Algamus Gambling Treatment Services, Rick Benson, believes that online gambling is more addictive than casinos because it’s more readily available to people and easier to hide.

He’s written that with the pandemic, many people were experiencing increased feelings of boredom, loneliness, and financial stress. This can lead them to gamble. Gambling disorders should be treated with the same urgency and seriousness as chronic physical health issues.
