Is it politics or fairness when it comes to pokies?

The recent ruling that the Australian government will not allow proposed limits on ATM Machines in Australian casinos, and the pre-commitment cards that activists want casinos to employ, has many people up in arms. People on both sides of the issue have their own opinions on what this decision really means. Some believe that it is a political ploy by the government, in order to make good on some campaign promises. Others believe that this is an issue of fairness, because they feel players should have the ability to make their own decisions on how much money they spend in a casino. Perhaps the best way to combat the perceived gambling problem, in Australia, which is said to be the highest in the world, is to educate people more on what they themselves can do to combat the issue.

The truth is that when these groups overplay their hands, and those on the outside hear of the stories, it makes them appear as if they are more about each taking money away from the casinos than they are protecting the players. It is fairly easy to see, when one begins to research this predicament, that there are all kinds of numbers which are being presented. Most of the time, these numbers are glaringly all about how much money these groups were able to keep the casino from earning. There is little talk of how many gamblers they were actually able to save from addiction. The latest is that, on average, a player spent $90.00 less on the pokies then they would have, had the limits on the ATMs not been in place in Victoria.

One of the most fascinating and exciting experiences to take part in in Australia are the pokies. Millions of people or playing the pokies every single day, but most of them may not realize how they actually came about. In 1885 the very first slot machine was created by Charles Fay.
