Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW) is held annually as a partnership between government, community and industry to raise awareness, provide information and encourage greater understanding of the importance of  responsible gambling.  

In Victoria and the Northern Territory the week is held this year from 12-18 October.

Victorians can find out about how to get involved, what events are being held, and learn a great deal more - including tips for responsible gambling - at the RGAW website.


While it's important to focus on responsible gambling all year round, Responsible Gambling Awareness Week (RGAW) represents a partnership between the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation, local councils, the gaming industry, community groups, individuals and many other contributors in raising awareness of responsible gambling.

This year in Victoria, RGAW features over 100 community events hosted throughout the state, encouraging discussion, providing information and promoting practical tips to ensure that gambling remains in balance with other activities for fun and entertainment only.

Northern Territory:

In the Northern Territory Amity Community Services have coordinated RGAW for many years and have worked to develop key messages and drive a public health campaign in partnership with the NT government, NT hotels and clubs, SKYCITY Darwin, community groups and other stakeholders.

The theme of RGAW in the NT this year is "Know when to take a break" and the week promotes the concept of responsible gambing at individual, govenrment, industry and community level.
