Shonica Guy is the plaintiff in a case alleging that the ‘Dolphin Treasure’ poker machine designed by Aristocrat and operated by Crown Casino is unlawful under Australian Consumer Law (ACL).

Woolworths

Woolworths is the biggest operator of pokies, the most damaging type of gambling, making an outrageous $2.4 billion out of its pokies business over the past 12 years. On average, that's $200 million a year! Woolworths: The Pokies People...

AFL

AFL clubs make nearly $100 million annually from poker machines. This family-friendly sport profits from harming our communities and we're asking them to follow the footsteps of North Melbourne and Geelong to get out of pokies.


Crown Casino 

Andrew Wilkie revealed to the Parliament video evidence of three whistleblowers detailing the alleged illegal and dangerous behaviour of Crown. 

The whistleblowers, all ex-employees of Crown, claimed that staff were told to tamper with poker machines so they can be played continuously, regularly reset the machine's memory to reduce returns to players and hid transactions greater than $10,000 from Austrac, the watchdog on money laundering.
