MELBOURNE – July 8, 2021- After an extensive and competitive pitch process, ENGINE, a global, full-service media and marketing services company, has been appointed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to develop and operate Australia’s first National Gambling Self-Exclusion Register.

ENGINE Australia’s MD, Craig Young said, “We are delighted to be able to help bring the Government’s vision for a national gambling self-exclusion register to life and look forward to bringing our experience delivering GAMSTOP (UK) to help Australians.”

“This initiative allows ENGINE to bring together our in-depth research expertise with our leading-edge digital service design and technology practices in order to create meaningful social change. With the development of the register, Australia will be at the forefront of global best practices in preventing harm from problem gambling. We look forward to working with industry stakeholders and consumers to bring the register to fruition.”
