A Roy Morgan Single Source survey shows that 47.9% of Australians aged 18+ (9.3 million people) gambled in an average three months during the year to December 2018, compared with 64.7% (10.5 million) in the year to December 2008. A decline has occurred across all major types of gambling over the last decade; the biggest drop in participation has been for lottery/scratch tickets, which are down 16.3% points to 40.1% but remain the most popular gambling category. Poker machines showed the next biggest loss, declining by 11.9% points to 13.7%, followed by betting (down 5.9% points to 9.4%). The survey is based on in-depth interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 consumers per annum in their homes. This survey includes detailed questioning of over 7,000 gamblers per annum from which the comprehensive ‘Gambling Currency Report’ is produced, covering long term gambling trends from 2002.
