Add your name to support our plan to rein in online gambling in NSW


Gambling is out of control in NSW. The state has almost half of Australia’s poker machines and loses more money per person to gambling than anywhere else in the world. However, online gambling poses even greater risks than gambling in a venue.

Serious gambling harm is twice as high in online gambling. Online gambling means anyone can gamble anywhere, anytime on nearly anything. This is causing a huge spike in gambling amongst younger people.

The online gambling industry is poorly regulated and bombarding our screens, airwaves and public spaces with advertisements specifically targeted at young men. This is normalising betting by sending the message that it is all ‘part of the fun’ of enjoying sport.

Sign up to support the Greens campaign to reign in the online gambling industry and reduce gambling harms by:

  • Establishing a National Independent Gambling Regulator.
  • Regulating online gambling to reduce gambling harms with mandatory pre-commitment and a universal exclusion scheme across all platforms.
  • Banning all gambling advertising including TV, radio and online ads.
  • Regulating gambling in video games and prohibit  ‘loot boxes’ being accessible by people under 18. 
  • Ending the grip of the gambling industry on politics by banning political donations from the gambling industry and restricting politicians and public servants from working for the gambling industry
