Abstract

In recent times self-exclusion programs for problem gamblers have experienced a significant increase in patronage in Australia. With the runaway success of these schemes, problems have been encountered in how to deal with the associated complications of implementing them effectively and techniques to improve them. These include dealing with complex legal situations and detection of those in the program who still try to gamble. The specific self-exclusion program discussed involves the largest group of gambling institutions in the country where over 2000 premises are covered. The type of gambling covered is slot machines within Australia, while having only 0.3 percent of the world's population, also being home to 20 percent of these devices.
