Miners Fuel Growth of Pokies in Queensland
Mackay, Queensland - while gambling locations in general have experienced four flat years of growth since 2008, the resource rich areas of the country are growing modestly and in some places like Mackay, strongly. The chief demographic driving the growth is miners who work the resource rich areas during the day and relax by trying their hand at the pokies. In the month of November, legalized gambling establishments posted $82 million in metered wins. Nearly $6.5 million of those metered wins came this past November alone. However, that growth trend hasn't been sufficient to offset the flat growth the state of Queensland has been struggling with as per the chief executive Justin O'Connor of the Queensland Hotels Association. O'Connor said that only the resource rich cities are experiencing growth. The 2008 financial crisis is what has largely slowed the growth of the gambling industry overall. A quick comparison of growth for the city of Mackay against the growth of the Sunshine Coast shows the disparity: $82 million for Mackay and $135 million for the Sunshine Coast. In the city of Ipswitch pokie players gamble nearly $1.5 million a day. The growth from miners may slow though as the number of miners accepting fly-in fly-out agreements is limiting their playing time.
