Australia currently holds the distinction of having the highest gambling losses per capita globally, with an estimated annual loss of around AU$1850 ($1200/€1210) per person.

These latest measures by the ACMA underscore the ongoing efforts to curb illegal online gambling activities and protect consumers from unlicensed operators in the Australian market.
