Victoria - Alliance for Gambling Reform

Victoria

Victoria is home to 26,384 poker machines with a $5 maximum bet. As a state, we lose $7,383,561 every day.

Over the last financial year Victoria lost $2.69 billion to pokies. To put that another way, it's the equivalent to $550 per adult in Victoria annually. 

Losses are on the rise! Last year, we were losing $2.61 billion annually, the equivalent to $7,149,397 every day.

Victoria’s least affluent suburbs lose six times more to poker machines than the most affluent postcodes. The gambling operators are clearly exploiting communities that are already highly stressed, and that can least afford the additional problems poker machines create.

However, we are lucky in Victoria to see the pokie problem being actively tackled by the Alliance's Leadership Councils: Banyule, Brimbank, Darebin, Greater Dandenong, Hume, Hobson's Bay, Kingston, Knox, Maribyrnong, Maroondah, Melbourne, Mitchell, Monash, Moreland, Mornington Peninsula, Whittlesea, Wyndham and Yarra. We're looking forward to continuing to act together to overcome the harm that Victoria experiences as a result of poker machines.
