South Australia is home to 12,337 pokies in 526 pubs and clubs. As a state, we lose $1.9 million daily to poker machines.
With the election fast approaching, we are advocating for harm-minimising gambling policies, such as:
- Maximum $1 bets
- Reduced opening hours for pokie venues
- Removing dangerous and addictive features, such as losses disguised as wins, linked jackpots, and free spins!
And it's working! The South Australian Greens & Xenophon's SA Best have produced gambling policy.

Until the election, we'll continue to demand that every political party produces a harm-minimising policy.
