Responsible Wagering

The vast majority of Australians who wager on racing and sport do so safely and responsibly as a form of entertainment and an enjoyable recreational activity.

Responsible Wagering Australia (RWA) and our members are committed to ensuring that Australia has the best conducted, socially responsible, wagering industry in the world.

RWA members are bound by a Code of Conduct and must maintain the highest standards of integrity and probity, including:


evidence-based, global best practice in responsible gambling and harm minimisation.


independent research to ensure accurate and representative information is made available to the community, policy makers and industry regarding the prevalence and impacts of online wagering in Australia.


with the National Integrity of Sport Unit to assist the fight against offshore betting threats to the integrity of Australian sport.


for further industry-wide commitments to reduce the volume of wagering advertising and to ensure that appropriate controls exist on a national basis.

RWA and our members acknowledge that some people experience problems with gambling.

We are committed to ensuring the implementation of industry-leading harm minimisation measures and access to help and support services for those affected by problem gambling.
