Brimbank Leads the State in Pokie Losses

The City of Brimbank, located in the metropolitan area of Melbourne in Victoria has been listed as the biggest loser on poker machines in the state of Victoria for the six months ending with December 2015.

A report released last Thursday by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulations (VCGLR) indicated poker machine losses in the state according to their half-yearly figures. The City of Brimbank was top of the list in the report.

Brimbank was reported to have lost $75 million on poker machines for the year ending December 2015. This includes two venues that were listed for their high player losses – Kealba Hotel came in fourth place with poker machine losses of $9.451 million, while Taylors Lake Family Hotel was listed in 12th place with reported poker machines losses of $8.178 million. This was the eighth year in a row that Brimbank has topped the state’s list for the biggest poker machine losses.

Brimbank was followed on the VCGLR financial report by Casey in the outer south-eastern suburbs of of Melbourne which reported poker machine losses of $64.1 million for the same period.

In the VCGLR financial report released for the 2014-15 financial year, Victorians were reported to have lost $2.57 billion on poker machines – the second consecutive year they lost over $2.5 billion. This amounted to a 2.7 percent increase in the amount lost on poker machines compared to the same period the previous year. The state budget collects more than $1 billion in annual pokie tax revenue on the 26,000 poker machines in the state.

Brimbank was reported to have lost $1.41 million on poker machines over the year period and it is looking like it may top that figure at the end of this financial year.
