Gambler's help

GamblingPublic

The Victorian Government is committed to working with the community, industry, employers, and employees to prevent and address problem gambling, and to foster responsible gambling.

Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation

On 1 July 2012, the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation (the Foundation) was established as an independent statutory authority, under the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation Act 2011.

The Foundation is responsible for the non-policy functions delivered by the Department of Justice & Regulation's former Office of Gaming and Racing, (now the Victorian Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing).

The Foundation will also provide community information on responsible gambling through the Gambling Information Resource Office.

The Foundation works with a range of stakeholders to develop:

  • community education and awareness
  • activities to foster responsible gambling and promote problem gambling help services
  • funding of services to assist problem gamblers and their family and friends
  • research to inform best practice in problem gambling treatment and prevention and responsible gambling communication
  • information about gambling regulation and licence approval processes to the Victorian community through the Gambling Information Resource Office.

For information about the Foundation, please visit the Responsible Gambling Foundation's website.

Young people and gambling

The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation (the Foundation) has launched a youth engagement strategy to put the spotlight on gambling and young people. Gambling's not a game aims to engage young people, parents, schools, sporting clubs and the wider community about the influence that gambling has on young people through sport, social media, online games and advertising.

To find out more information about the Foundation visit the Responsible Gambling Foundation's website or to find out about the campaign go to the Kidbet - Gambling is not a game website.

Other resources

In addition to the printed resources, the Foundation also maintains several websites relating to responsible gambling:

  • Problem Gambling - Self-help information to assist problem gamblers, and their family and friends.
  • Gamble Aware - Information about how gambling works to help people who choose to gamble do so responsibly.
  • Problem Gambling Professionals - Information, guidance and resources to help health and welfare professionals identify problem gambling clients and respond to their needs.
Self-exclusion program for gambling patrons

It is the responsibility of the venue operator to adopt a self-exclusion program that has been approved by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation. The self-exclusion program should be easy for customers to understand, is publicised in a clear manner, protects the privacy and dignity of the customers, and demonstrates links with a problem gambling service.

However, patrons can approach a gaming venue operator and request to voluntarily exclude themselves from a gaming machine area. More information is available, go to Self-exclusion program for gambling patrons.

Code of conduct and technical standards

There are certain businesses and licence holders that are required to have a code of conduct in the gambling and liquor industries.

There are also certain standards that have been introduced that gaming operators must follow. The technical standards for venue operators are used for the evaluation of gaming machine types and games, and to guide testers when testing gaming equipment for compliance.
