We are at a crucial point in time where we can choose to limit the damage caused by poker machines, or go down the path of creating more powerful vested interests and higher levels of harms.

Anglicare’s new advertising campaign, launched on Wednesday, includes a TV ad, radio spots and social media.

We want all Tasmanians to have clear facts about the harm being caused by high-intensity machines designed to trigger addiction.

Poker machines not only take $110 million from local communities each year, they are clustered in the most disadvantaged areas. We don’t think that’s fair.

We believe there are better ways to do business.
