The Roy Morgan Gambling Currency Reports show that poker machines (including online) account for 56.7% of all the dollars gambled in Australia. Meanwhile, 20.7% of the gambling dollar is spend on all forms of betting, including sports betting (5.2%) and horse racing, harness racing and greyhounds (15.5%). Lottery/Scratch tickets make up a further 14.2% of Australia’s gambling dollars, followed by Casino table games (including online) at 5.0% and Keno at 3.4%. Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine notes that more than 2.7 million Australians aged 18+ (14.2%) use a poker machine in an average three months, significantly higher than the two million Australians (10.5%) who place a bet on a horse race, harness race, greyhounds or sporting event.
