Abstract

Gaming or gambling has a crucial and distinctive place in the Australian culture. Many Australians are proud of their reputation as a nation of people who will “bet on two flies on the wall”. This study attempts to explore the popularity of gaming in Australia and its relationship with the Australian national identity. Three representative elements in Australian national identity, egalitarianism, fatalism and mateship are discussed together with gaming, revealing a result that those cultural factors are all embodied in gaming. The study focuses on the cultural factors integrated in the gaming activities, using cultural elements to explain the significant social phenomenon.
