Victoria Needs Pokie Reform! - Alliance for Gambling Reform

Victoria Needs Policies to Reduce Pokie Harm!

Dear Members of Parliament-

Victoria is home to 26,384 pokies with a $5 maximum bet. It's no wonder that over the last year, Victorian's lost $2.69 billion to poker machines. 

That's the equivalent to $7,383,561 every day or $550 per Victorian adult annually.

We need a strong policy response which is why this coming election, I want to see you adopt into policy:

1) A maximum $1 bet for poker machines
2) Reduced operating hours for pokie venues
3) Banning "Losses disguised as wins"

As a Victorian community, we're losing too much to poker machines. It's time for reform!

Will you sign?

Pokies are a serious problem in Victoria! This year, as a state, we lost $2.69 billion to pokies, which is equivalent to $550 per adult. That's $7,383,561 lost every day!

This is an increase from last year's losses of $2.61 billion, the daily equivalent being $7,149,397

It's clear that pokies are the most destructive and dangerous form of gambling and we need to see an adequate policy response. That's why we want to see the major parties adopting three common-sense policies this election:

  • A maximum $1 bet for poker machines
  • Reduced operating hours
  • Banning losses disguised as wins

These measures will have a serious impact on limiting the losses and consequently, the harm caused by poker machines.
