Due to their historical ties to organised crime and their cash-intensive nature, casinos have long been considered vulnerable to money laundering. Paradoxically, only a handful of research initiatives have broached the subject in serious detail.

Using a variety of analytical methods, this study provides an in-depth assessment of the scope of money laundering in the casino industry, as well as the legislative and practical measures that can be taken to limit susceptibility. Though it focuses on the current situation in Australia, international initiatives and experiences from further afield are extensively incorporated, making the findings applicable to casinos and regulators worldwide.
