Tasmania Bans Alcohol Service for Pokies Players

The Hospitality Association has labelled new restrictions on gamblers being served alcohol while at poker machines in Tasmania as restrictive and harsh.

The new restrictions came into effect on May 1.

Patrons will no longer be served alcohol when playing, standing or sitting at poker machines.

At casinos, people playing cannot be served alcohol between 6pm and close of gambling each day.

Hoteliers have called the laws the harshest in the country and said they go too far.
