ABSTRACT
Gambling is a popular form of entertainment and social engagement in Australian culture that dates back to the country's early colonial period. Since the 1930s, gambling in Australia has been subject to increasing commercialisation and regulation. Gambling is now a multibillion dollar industry, and one on which state governments have become reliant for tax revenues that are used to fund many public and social services.
