Every July the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) publishes the annual gaming expenditure data (poker machine player losses) for the previous financial year. The data outlines total gaming expenditure and gaming venue information, including venue classification and electronic gaming machine numbers for Victoria.
VCGLR Director of Licensing Alex Fitzpatrick said, “Victorian gambling venues have been closed since the State of Emergency was declared on 16 March 2020. Gaming expenditure data for April, May and June 2020 reflects these closures.”
The VCGLR has also releases the full list of which the suburbs are the biggest pokies players, and which venues.
