Gambling activity among Australian teenagers



Gambling activity among Australian teenagersReading Time: 2 minutes


The Growing Up In Australia Longitudinal Study of Australian Children found the most common gambling activity for 16-17 year olds was private betting with friends or family. However, some teenagers reported betting on sports and races which have strict age restrictions requiring people to be 18 years or over.

Australian Institute of Family Studies Director, Anne Hollonds said while most 16-17 year-olds did not gamble, a significant number – one in five boys and one in eight girls – reported spending money on at least one gambling activity in a 12-month period.

“The most common form of gambling for these teenagers was private betting with friends and family with no legal age restrictions, such as cards or maj-jong,” she said.

“However, about 5 per cent of 16-17 year-olds reported betting on sports games as well as horse and dog races which have strict age restrictions.  And despite acceptable proof of age being required for entry into gaming venues, about 2 per cent of 16-17 year-olds – some 9000 teenagers reported having spent money on poker machines, casino table games and Keno.

“Previous research has shown that heavy involvement in gambling during adolescence can lead to a variety of issues such as relationship problems and poor educational outcomes, and some of these young people might be at greater risk of gambling-related harm in the future.”

Institute researcher Dr Rebecca Jenkinson said the study identified a number of factors influencing teenagers’ gambling behaviours including individual differences, the family environment and the behaviour of friends.

“The study found that teenagers were more likely to gamble if they or their friends engaged in risky behaviours such as drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes or using cannabis.  On the other hand, they were less likely to gamble if their friends had a positive attitude towards academic achievement and were interested in doing well at school,” she said.

“Boys who had either been the victim or perpetrator of bullying at school were also more likely to take part in gambling activities. However, this association was not found to be significant for girls.”

Dr Jenkinson said some differences were also observed in young people’s gambling behaviour depending on their parents’ gambling behaviour.

“In households where no resident parent reported having gambled in the previous 12-months, 11 per cent of teenagers had engaged in some type of gambling activity compared to 17 per cent of teenagers in households where one or both parents had gambled,” she said.

“In addition, the percentage of girls who reported playing gambling-like video games was significantly higher if they had a parent who also played these types of games.  However, this was not the case for boys.”

Dr Jenkinson said simulated gambling embedded in some video games was also a risk factor which could increase the likelihood of teenagers gambling with real money and developing gambling problems in the future.

“Our study found that the number of 16-17 year-olds who had spent money on at least one gambling activity in the previous 12 months was significantly higher among those who had also played gambling-like games during that time,” she said.

“These results support the argument that playing gambling-like games may increase the likelihood of some teenagers transitioning to commercial gambling in the future.”

Dr Jenkinson said future policies and initiatives aimed at reducing gambling related harm to young people might consider limiting the availability and marketing of gambling activities, such as ensuring stricter enforcement of acceptable proof of age for online gambling apps and entry into gaming venues.

Online Slot Games

Slot games are a great source of entertainment regardless of whether you play in a live casino or online. Because of the ease of access, users have the freedom to log-into the gaming portal at any time and will always be guaranteed a game. Online casinos are also popular for their flexible stakes which give players more control over their budget than a conventional house.

RescueBet also offers new joiners a 100% bonus to help kickstart a player’s gaming experience.

Online casino slots have the advantage of providing a user with more privacy and anonymity while playing when compared to a land-based casino, riddled with nosy onlookers. And privacy can be an important sticking point when it comes to gambling. The user has full control to choose games as per their personal choice and can start and end any game whenever they want.

RescueBet’s selection of online slot games covers a variety of themes With a selection of online slot games to choose from online, users are spoilt for choice.

Users get the chance to take advantage of the periodic bonuses and generous loyalty point system to up their chances of taking home a big jackpot.

It’s been observed that online slot machine games have a 10-15% higher payout in comparison to that of traditional land-based slots.

Players must also take advantage of the bonus games that are featured within the slots, each allowing players to increase their winnings. If players are able to win these featured games and collect enough wild symbols during their slot games, they might have a shot at winning the progressive jackpot, which gets larger every time the game is played by any user until someone wins. And the next winner could easily be you.

So, How’s The Rebate Works?

RescueBet now offers up to 13% losses rebate on all slot games per week. Every week, RescueBet calculates the user’s slot game losses using a formula and then credits 13% of the losses back to the user’s rebate wallet. Players can use these extra funds to chase those lucky spins or wager in a different room. The 13% losses rebate introduced by RescueBet is aimed at helping users maximize their profits responsibly. Every time a member transfers funds from their rebate wallet to their game provider wallet, there is a wagering requirement that must be met.

A user must meet a 30x wagering requirement before a member can transfer the funds to their main wallet. The user will have to wager the combined amount of their deposit and bonus 30 times over before they can withdraw any of the winnings. RescueBet believes that a loss rebate would be more valuable to their members rather than a high rollover requirement and would encourage a healthier partnership practice. This promotes responsible betting practices where users can use these extra funds to even win at additional engagements of the site.
