Affilliation Candidate Answer
Independent Doug Chipman Phased reduction over time in pubs & clubs 
Independent  Richard James It is a much bigger problem that limitation on $1 bets. I believe a better approach is to either to reduce the number of gaming machines in pubs and clubs and/or separate gaming areas from public lounges and eating areas and also limit the hours of operation of gaming areas within pubs and clubs.
Independent  Hans Willink I want poker machines out of Tasmania. They are a cancer on society. That said, I support interim measures including fewer pokies, removal from pubs and clubs, lower intensity machines and mandatory pre-commitment.
Liberal Party  James Walker

As a Liberal, I believe in freedom of choice. Minimising the harm of gambling, particularly protecting those more susceptible to problem gambling, is also important to me. Tasmania has a strong harm minimisation framework, which includes a Responsible Gambling Mandatory Code of Practice. In addition to this, the Hodgman Liberal Government has committed to reducing the State-wide cap on electronic gaming machines by 150 machines in 2023, and last year introduced a new Community Interest Test, giving local communities the opportunity to have their opinion taken into account when new applications for EGM venues are assessed by the Liquor and Gaming Commission.
