  1. Great list cyenne!

    Add the Rossmore Hotel Yallourn North…Trafalgar Hotel, Trafalgar, Yarragon Hotel…and Bridie O’Reilly’s in Brunswick (and no doubt also Chapel Street and city)? All Walhalla pubs…and Erica Hotel…The Beehive Hotel Hawthorn / Kew?

  2. ps Unless things have much changed the Royal Oak in Richmond IS a HUGE pokies pub! Rydges Hotel and the Bridge Hotel Richmond on the other hand are pokies-free I think…so could be added…xo

    Nice work on the list.

    I’ve never understood the pokies equals entertainment viewpoint. I could not think of a worse way to spend a night out.

  5. Agree, Steve! I assure you that in spending in excess of 20,000 hours over 14 years in pokies venues, hopelessly addicted and desperately trying to win money back, lost on pokies gambling…that experience was anything but entertaining! More just very sad! I cannot believe that I was ever quite so stupid or obsessed, that I wasted such a huge part of my life so dismally! The power of addiction to stuff up good judgment is gross! But the power of advertising is strong also…and for years we were all told to ‘come to the pokies for some light-hearted fun and entertainment’…with never a hint that it could be anything BUT!
