Cairns has staved off a challenge from Townsville to hold on to the Pokie King Challenge Mug for October. Townsvillians held back as they saved their pennies to be able to afford tickets to next years Neil Diamond concert.
This is actually an interesting data set particularly related to recent hours expansions where it seems like all your local suburban pubs are seeking gaming licence expansions for pokies until 4am. I find it difficult to contemplate that the economics of pokies would make 4am gaming in a suburban pub work. But who am I to judge having never ventured from bed at that hour to investigate the local pub.
Will leave this to next month by when Reef Casino will have provided guidance.
