Submission to House of Assembly Select Committee Inquiry into the $1 Bet Limit Bill

Social Action and Research Centre Submission

Following the lead of the Productivity Commission’s review of measures to reduce gambling problems, the Tasmanian Parliament looked into the feasibility of reducing maximum bet limits on poker machines to $1 per button push. Anglicare’s submission to the parliamentary inquiry argues that reducing the bet limit would reduce harm while having minimal impact on recreational gamblers.
