Every day $17million is lost through poker machines in New South Wales. Every day of the year.
We need whoever is elected to government to start dealing with this as a public health issue and to swiftly act to minimize and prevent further harm. NSW still has over 92,000 poker machines (over 30% of the world’s non-casino pokies) and numbers have only fallen 5% in a decade.
Pokies are designed to addict and they contribute to poverty, mental health issues, and family violence.
This election, we're campaigning to start the process of reducing gambling harm with common sense policies such as;
1. Bringing in $1 maximum bets
2. Banning loyalty programs that encourage people to gamble more
3. Giving councils the right to say “NO” to pokie machines
Ongoing state-wide Campaigns:
It's clear pubs & clubs can't be trusted to act in the best interest of the community! Sign the petition to give Councils the final say
