The documentary Ka-Ching! Pokie Nation is a powerful tool for engaging Australians on the issue of poker machine gambling, and how it damages our communities. We want community groups, councils, churches, small clubs and friends and families to bring their group together, screen the documentary and start the discussion within their community about the addictive nature and potential for community harm from pokies.
In this ground-breaking expose, industry insiders go on the record to explain how carefully Pokies are programmed for addiction. They’re joined by world-leading neuroscientists, taking you into the lab to reveal how these machines work on the deepest levels of our brains, leading some researchers to call them “electronic morphine”. And, we reveal how successive Australian governments have become the biggest addicts of all.
This documentary puts the pokie machine on trial.
