The Responsible Gambling Fund (RGF) is committed to funding programs and initiatives that support responsible gambling and prevent and minimise the risk of problem gambling related harm in the community.
The RGF plays a key role in helping Government develop evidence-based and innovative approaches to prevent and reduce gambling harms. The RGF, funded by a levy on the Star casino, will this year allocate $18 million for initiatives to promote responsible gambling and address problem gambling.
Funding is available for a range of programs and projects as part of a strategic approach that supports responsible gambling and prevents and minimises the risk of problem gambling related harm in the community.
It does this through:
A new Office of Responsible Gambling has been established within Liquor, Gaming & Racing to support the Responsible Gambling Fund as one of its functions.
