SOUTH AUSTRALIA:  Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (22-28 May) kicks off today with this year's theme 'family and friends of people impacted by gambling'. Communities and Social Inclusion Minster Zoe Bettison said people with a gambling problem are not the only ones who suffer with families and friends also affected. It is estimated between five and 10 people are impacted by the problem gambling of one individual. Almost one in five people accessing gambling support services are family members of people with a gambling problem.
