No More Pokies in Darebin

To the VCGLR (gambling licensing regulators),

The community already loses $4.5 million dollars from this venue alone. The club already has 65 poker machines operating, now they want 15 more. This kind of greed will hurt our community. 

There are already 754 poker machines in Darebin, with over $80 million dollars being lost on these every year. That means, last year, the amount of money lost from poker machines was the equivalent of each adult losing $637.52 a year.

It's important we keep our community a safe space for families and individuals. We know this money is being lost by the most vulnerable people in our communities.

We've had enough!!

The Darebin RSL is a venue that already drains money our community businesses into poker machines. They have recently submitted a licensing application to the VCGLR asking for 15 more machines to add their club.

It's important our community doesn't allow more harm from poker machines in Darebin. A higher density of poker machines in an area leads to higher crime, poverty, mental health issues and family violence. This is unacceptable and additional pokies in Darebin must be stopped.
