LIVE MUSIC BOUNCY CASTLE SANTA IF WE ARE VERY GOOD Ranui Com munity House and Library 474 Swanson Rd Less money being spent on pokies By STEPHEN FORBES Newly released figures from the Department of Internal Affairs show the amount west Auck- landers spend on gaming machines is falling. Gaming machine proceeds in Waitakere city topped $8.6 million in the September quar- ter, down from more than $8.8 million during the same period last year -- a drop of about 2.5 percent. Department of Intern- al Affairs gambling pol- icy manager John Mark- land says this is in keeping with a nation- wide trend. Mr Markland says although non-casino gaming machines make up the largest of the country s four main gam- bling sectors, the amount people have spent on them nationally has fallen over the past two years, from $889 million in 2008/09 to $849 million in 2009/10. He says the drop in spending is probably a reflection of the current economic climate. But Problem Gam- bling Foundation chief executive Graeme Ram- sey disagrees. He says pokie machines are the pri- mary mode of gambling for 70 percent of the foundation s clients. The Department of Internal Affairs has suggested it is due to the economic conditions, but I don t think that s the case. I think people are spending less on pokie machines because people are realising how dangerous they are and how foolish it is to spend money on them. The Waitakere City Council introduced tougher new regulations last year in a bid to reduce the number of gaming machines in west Auckland. The changes included a sinking lid policy which means when a licensed gaming machine venue closes it can not be replaced. The policy is expected to limit the size of the city s gambling industry and lead to an eventual reduction in the number of machines. Mr Ramsey says while he would like to see all gaming machines phased out, such policies are an effective way of reducing the number of pokies.
