No More Pokies in Ballarat! - Alliance for Gambling Reform

No More Pokies in Ballarat!

The hearing date has been set, and the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor will decide if the Ballarat Golf Club will be given six additional poker machines in less than a month. That means the local community needs to act now!

The Ballarat Golf Club has applied for six poker machines to add their existing 28. They currently take over $2 million from the community every year! 

Recently, in Officer, the community rallied together against an application and made dozens of submissions to the VCGLR. Due to the quality and number of submissions portraying the community opposition, the application was rejected. The VCGLR cannot ignore strong community voices!

We’ve made it super easy, there is a pre-written a message that you can edit and send to the VCGLR. All you need to do is add your postcode, name and email address!
