Regional Pokie Stats
PGF supports the need for the development of an effective and caring public health policy for the introduction, maintenance and regulation of gambling in New Zealand. PGF advocates the need to separate regulation from enforcement and policy, and the need for an independent commission.
Statistics for Class 4 electronic gaming machines (aka non-casino pokies) can be viewed or downloaded from the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) website. This information includes the amount of money lost to pokies, how many pokies and venues are in the country, and more. The information is updated quarterly.
