By all reports, it is a shocking report into the way that poker machines are placing a terrible cost on our society. There is stunning new evidence that pokie addiction functions in exactly the same way as heroin, cocaine or ice. This product has not just been licensed by the State but spread irresponsibly throughout Australia for the profit of the gambling industry, not to mention State Treasuries.
PLEASE help us lift awareness about poker machines by:
- Watching Ka-Ching tonight and encouraging others to watch it to. You can see and share Ka-Ching's trailer here.
- Live tweeting during the event with the hashtag #kaching so that we can contribute a distinctly Christian voice to the conversation.
- Stay tuned for next steps we can all take as part of an alliance of more than 40 community groups committed to addressing the problem.
