Always punching above our weight, Aussies top this list of how much each grown citizen loses to the gambling industry every year. We don’t just win, we win emphatically.
Aussies are well above anyone else, beating Japan’s booming pachinko industry and Singapore easily. We win! Yay! Oh wait. Not yay. Anti-yay.
Of course, because of population size, other countries have higher overall gambling losses. But the amount lost per citizen is astounding. And it’s no surprise how much of that is to pokie machines.
