New South Wales Government Allocates $100M to Combat Gambling Harm

The New South Wales (NSW) government has pledged $100 million in funding to address gambling harm in the state. The commitment is part of the Minns Labor Government Budget and reflects their dedication to combating money laundering, implementing gaming reforms, and mitigating the consequences of gambling. The funding will be allocated to various areas, including gambling harm minimization initiatives, the Responsible Gambling Fund, self-exclusion programs, and a cashless gaming trial. These efforts align with NSW’s focus on gambling harm prevention and have the potential to lead to noticeable improvements. Despite past ineffective regulations, the government’s commitment to evidence-based reform provides hope for the future.
