Notes:
These figures are based on pokie machine numbers by District/City supplied by the Dept of Internal Affairs and include the approved numbers of machines in the country’s 6 casinos.

The pokie machine figures are compared with June 30, 2004 population estimates produced by Statistics New Zealand, to which Gambling Watch has then applied the 2001 census % of residents in the district/city who are 18 years old and over, to calculate the number of adult residents per pokie machine. 18 is now the new legal minimum age for playing non-casino pokie machines.

The daily losses are calculated using the total NZ losses on noncasino pokie machines for the 2004 financial year (the most recent figures available from the Dept of Internal Affairs), divided by the number of pokie machines in the country, and by 365, to give an average daily loss (rounded to the nearest $100).

Casino pokie losses are assumed to be the same, as specific figures are not available – it is likely that this component is understated.
