Promise Pokie-Harm Prevention Policy for Brimbank!

Dear Members of Victorian Parliament,

I support the campaign to reduce harm from poker machines.

I call on the political parties to commit to:
− $1 maximum bets on all poker machines
− Reducing the maximum number of hours that gaming venues can operate per day
− Introduce a sinking cap on the number of poker machines in Brimbank
− Fund more research to better understand the local impact of harmful gambling.

Brimbank residents are losing more than $382,000 to pokies EVERY DAY! Poker machines are rigged. They are a con – designed to addict and for the player to lose. Pokie addiction is linked to high levels of mortgage stress, family violence, crime and family breakdown. It affects the whole community.
