The Gambling Legislation Amendment (Responsible Gambling) Act 1999 and other regulations aim to ensure that registered clubs and hotels adopt responsible practices for gambling activities conducted on their premises. Dee Why RSL Club is committed to the principles of Responsible Conduct of Gaming.
Problem gambling may be characterised by a loss of control over gambling, especially over the scope and frequency of gambling, the level of wagering and the amount of leisure time devoted to gambling. Many negative consequences result from this loss of control such as failure of relationships, finances and employment.
Unlike alcohol-related problems, gambling abuses are more difficult to detect. Affordability is very important and employees play a primary role in observing, monitoring and communicating with patrons and management.
The Club’s responsible gambling practices recognise that the vast majority of those patrons who participate in gambling do so as an enjoyable activity but that for some, gambling causes significant problems. Characteristics of problem gambling include:
