AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY: Attorney-General Gordon Ramsay has announced a suite of incentives to reduce gaming machines in the territory to 4000, as part of its commitment to tackle gambling harm. Small and medium clubs will be eligible for up to $12,000 for every gaming machine authorisation they voluntarily surrender by January 31, 2019. Clubs that opt to go pokie free will get a 25% bonus on top of any incentives they claim.
