Gambling Reform Policy

Poker machine reform needs to tackle both money laundering and the harm caused by problem gambling. Support the adoption of the evidence based recommendations of Wesley Mission, that tackle the harm caused by problem gambling, including:

  • Implementation of an ID linked, mandatory cashless gaming card, with built-in harm minimisation measures including meaningful daily, weekly, and annual default loss limits;
  • Extending the pokies power down period by four hours to run from 12am to 10am;
  • Establish an independent statewide self-exclusion register;
  • Empowering local councils to make submissions on all poker machine applications in their communities;
  • Publishing venue poker machine data on a regular basis.
