This Election, Promise Pokie-Harm Prevention Policy for the West!

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 bet on all poker machines
- Reduced operating hours at gaming venues
- A sinking cap on the number of poker machines in the region

Councils in Melbourne West are losing $1.34 million 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.
