The Screen Guide

Gambling in Australia is in the midst of unprecedented change. In the past decade, punting has gone from a quaint trait to a national obsession driven by transnational corporations and revenue-hungry governments. Today, there are more forms of legalised gambling in Australia than anywhere else in the world and Australians spend more on betting than people in any other nation. Going behind the scenes of the gambling industry and into the lives of the gamblers themselves, THE GAMBLERS looks at these extraordinary changes as they take place. The stories are told from the points of view of those on the frontlines: a casino executive, a race track manager, a bookie and a professional punter, a suicidal addict, and an anti-gambling crusader. Together, they tell the story of a nation gripped by gambling.
