Victoria Examines Spending on Pokies

The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation has released data that reveals that pokies players in the region spent $17 million from July to December 2015. This amounts to an incredible $93,000 wagered every day on poker machines in the south west region of the state.

Across the four local government regions of Warrnambool City Council, Corangamite, Glenelg Shire and Southern Grampians Shire, pokies expenditure worked out to $197.93 per person every day over the six month period.
