Gambling and Gaming Law and Regulation Australia 2021
Expert Insight provided by Senet 

Gambling is an important industry in Australia and contributes significantly to the national Gross Domestic Product. Despite the sizable contribution of the gambling industry to the Australia economy, there exists social pressure on government and operators to heighten measures in relation to consumer protection and to minimise problem gambling. Gambling laws in Australia are complex as there is no single overarching statute regulating gambling activities, nor is there a single overarching gambling authority.

In addition, a series of Federal statutes also cover certain aspects of gambling activity throughout Australia.
