In recent years Australian gambling expenditure has grown twice as fast as the rest of the economy. Gambling is a readily available leisure activity in Australia. Under these conditions, there is a growing concern for youth participation in gambling. The aim of this article was to review three Australian studies (Hebron, 1997; Maddern 1996; Moore & Ohtsuka, 1997) on youth gambling, to ascertain participation rates and provide information on the characteristics of young gamblers. Participation rates were compared with international studies (e.g., Stinchfield, Cassuto, Winters, & Latimer, 1997) and intervention strategies for youth gamblers in the Australian context were discussed.
