Awareness and prevention
The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) publishes data on gambling expenditure for electronic gaming machines (EGMs) for each local government area in Victoria. The VCGLR annual report contains information on expenditure on gambling in Victoria and the taxes and other duties that are collected.
The commission also provides information on electronic gaming machines gambling expenditure by venue and in relation to population density within local government area.
Greater Dandenong Council have compiled a spreadsheet of 2016-17 VCGLR annual EGM data for Victoria. A sorting function allows for comparisons among council areas.
These resources, on the VCGLR website, have filtering functions to identify gaming information or to locate venues with dual gambling and liquor licenses.
