TV report: Could smartcard help problem gamblers?

  • Video report: “Canada provides example of pokie reform” – 2012

In Australia, a proposal for a smartcard to help problem gamblers addicted to electronic gaming machines, or “pokies”, became one of the country’s most contentious political issues. Supporters and opponents both point to a similar scheme in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia to argue their position. I set out with a video camera to investigate.

This was an independently shot and produced report for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s award-winning program, 7.30. Broadcast on 13/1/2012
