The Dandenong RSL have applied for an additional 11 poker machines to add to their existing 63. They take over $7.6 million from the community every year.
The Dandenong RSL is in the middle of a dangerous cluster of poker machine venues in the municipality, it owns 63 of the 401 poker machines in a 2.5 km radius of the venue. Within this radius over $42 million is lost annually.
Dandenong can not afford any more poker machines, especially from within this cluster of venues. There is already wide spread harm from poker machines and disadvantage, additional machines will only further exacerbate the issue.
Your voice and taking action is extremely valuable. In the past, we have seen that community submissions have made all the difference in pokies being stopped!
