Gambling problems can have severe personal consequences, including financial hardship, emotional difficulties, social impacts, employment difficulties, and legal problems. We analysed Queensland gambling data and found that gambling expenditure by Queenslanders has increased by 42 per cent from $3.2 billion in 2009–10 to $4.6 billion in 2021–22. The Gambling harm minimisation plan for Queensland 202125 aims to address and minimise gambling-related harm and its impact on the wider community.
