A national-first gambling tax that has passed South Australia's parliament is a win for the state, a leading welfare group says.

SA Council of Social Services chief executive Ross Womersley says the tax will make betting fairer for the community, with the state government set to raise about $10 million a year through the initiative that can be spent on vital services.

The SA Wagering Tax, announced in the state budget this year will require online betting companies to pay 15 per cent tax on all bets placed in SA from July 2017.
