The event

Experts are worried that the early exposure of children to games that simulate gambling may lead to problem gambling habits in adulthood. Despite this, most of these games are freely available to young people.

Playing these games often becomes a daily activity making gambling seem like part of everyday life.

Unlike previous generations, today’s youth have online lives that blend seamlessly with their offline lives. They invite the world into their daily activities through use of computers, smartphones and tablet devices.

There is no doubt these technologies bring benefits, but as parents, carers and educators we are all aware of the need to protect children and teenagers from the risks that come with them.

Join Premier Jay Weatherill, World Vision’s Tim Costello, Amity Dry and the University of Adelaide's Paul Delfabbro as they discuss this topic in an intimate panel discussion.
