Help shape the policy

Council has developed a draft gambling harm minimisation policy for community review, that takes a public health approach to address gambling; and recognises the harm caused to individuals, their families, and the community. You can read it here.

Council’s commitment to reducing harm from gambling activities is set out in Casey's Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2021-25, which provides direction on the municipality's health and wellbeing priorities and builds upon Council’s previous Electronic Gaming Machine (EGM) Strategy 2015-20.

In the past year alone (2022/23), almost $160 million has been lost to electronic gaming machines across Casey. This represents the greatest losses for the municipality in a twelve month period and has occurred as emerging forms of gambling (e.g. online, sports betting) have also seen rapid growth, catering to new segments of the population.
