We'r hoping to catch up with this list but it is still currently being updated. There are still heaps and heaps more cases we haven't gone into yet and we'r looking for volunteers to help compile the list.

The aim of this list is to show just some of the examples of how gambling addictions affect our communities. 

If you would like to volunteer to help with our internet searches then please email 

You can download the list as an excel sheet at


**Please note that the dates or areas on this list may refer to either the time of arrest, the time of sentencing or the time of the newspaper article and are rough guides only.**
