Northcote by-election is coming up soon and whoever wins could have a crucial role in fixing the weak pokies laws that currently operate. Here's the responses to our candidate survey;
The Northcote electorate has 4 pokie venues which hold 190 pokies. Consequently, Northcote lost over $18 million over the 2016/2017 financial year. That's the equivalent to Northcote residents losing $49,315 every single day.
Across the state, Victorian's are losing $2.6 BILLION a year from poker machines. That's an average of $7,149,397 every day in 2016-17. Per Victorian adult, $542 is lost, in just one year.
As the successful Candidate could have significant influence over the future of pokie laws in this State- we want them to be taking this issue seriously!
