IMPORTANT UPDATE

********************************************************************

Poker machines harm people; there is a proven link between poker machines and family violence, depression, divorce and crime.

Poker machines drained $2.6 billion from Victorian pockets last financial year. In Casey, there are more than 900 poker machines which take more than $125 million each year; that's the second-highest in the state.

Zagame's Berwick Springs Hotel is the biggest, most profitable pokies pub in Casey, and they're applying for 10 more machines. Last time they did this their profits went up $1.7 million. That's more people harmed; that's money that could be spent supporting a range of local businesses.

Tell Casey City Council to reject Zagame's application for more poker machines. Tell them Berwick has had enough.
