For many Australians, part of the fun of enjoying a sporting event – either live or on TV – is to have a punt on the outcome. You might be watching our nation’s sports, such as Super-Rugby, the AFL or the NRL, or your preference might be for the American big beasts that are the NBA and NFL. Then there is soccer, tennis, and not forgetting horse racing to keep us interested. An even newer phenomenon is eSports, with many folks enjoying being a participant in the many different native and overseas lotteries.
Looking for a great place to enjoy such opportunities should bring you to join us here at iPunt (owned and operated by Punt Media Pty Ltd). If you have already found our superbly informative and user-friendly web portal via your laptop, desktop or tablet, or through our sensational smartphone app, then you’ll know that our talented team is always working so hard to deliver the highest levels of both information and betting opportunity.

About Problem Gambling
If anyone were ever to commission a series of ‘typical Aussie’ portraits, there would surely be at least one involving our love of the punt. It’s one of our prime ways to relax and have fun. For you, it might just be that annual chance to pick out a Melbourne Cup champion or a flutter on your favourite lotteries. A night out in a casino suits some, while fun with friends – and the pokies – down at the club hits the spot for others.
Our iPunt team also know that, for some people, their gambling becomes a compulsion rather than a pleasure. Indeed, it’s been suggested that around half-a-million people might already have such a problem or the potential to develop it. When this happens, we know of two proven and important ways to take action.
The first is to prevent companies from accepting your bets by taking out a self-exclusion application. It’s up to you to nominate the length of time it’s in place; you can then apply for another when the first expires.
The second is contacting Gambling Help Online. Many who have done so quickly discovered that they are neither isolated nor alone in their situation. Through GHO, you’ll get access to other people’s stories and benefit from helpful advice.
When gambling is no longer enjoyable for you and perhaps your family, then please take action and seek gambling counselling.
