Recent and Current Media Campaigns
Gambling Support Program (GSP) uses multi-media advertising campaigns to deliver information and build understanding within the Tasmanian community around gambling issues. Campaigns include prevention messages, such as how the house edge in commercial gambling ensures losses to the player over time, and intervention information such as what the signs of problem gambling are, and where to go for help when a gambling problem is present.
Tasmanian Gambling Exclusion Scheme
The Tasmanian Gambling Exclusion Scheme provides a means for patrons to exclude themselves, or be excluded from gambling. This campaign provides information about the scheme, including how patrons can register.
Family and Friends
For every person with a gambling problem, five to ten other people are affected. This campaign provides information to those people affected about how to look after themselves, their families and their finances.
Know Your Odds
