            Examining the social and political implications of Video Lottery Terminal (VLT) misuse, this authoritative study describes the links between financial stress, physical and mental health issues, depression, alcohol dependency, marital break-up, and suicidal desires with pathologic...al gambling. Contrasting the social fallout from VLTs?the most addictive gambling activity?with government inaction, the lack of substantive public policy is called to question in light of the annual revenue figures derived from gambling. This perceptive report investigates increasingly politicized discussions surrounding VLTs, and serves as a clarion call to governments to take action.

            A poignant and compassionate work of literary journalism that tackles Australia's most controversial pastime.Almost 200,000 poker machines sing and flash in pubs, clubs, and casinos in every corner of the country. They're highly complex devices, their components designed by mathe...maticians, musicians, animators, and ergonomic experts. They're also widely considered the most harmful form of gambling, the cause of the majority of gambling addictions. So how did Australia evolve into a pokie nation?With startlingly candid interviews from gambling addicts, politicians, manufacturers, neuroscientists, counsellors, anti-gambling campaigners, and gambling advocates, One Last Spin explores how the machines work to hook people in, and the vicious fight being waged to evict them from the country's social life. It is a confronting tale about the human cost of addiction, of governments pandering to corporate interests, and of the insidious power of the industry's PR spin.
