The Leader poll question - pokie reforms

THE government's poker machine reforms remain in the balance after key independents moved towards further softening of the proposed rollout of plans to give punters the option of presetting how much they are willing to lose.

The government's bill would require venues with more than 20 machines to have voluntary pre-commitment on all its machines from 2016, with smaller venues given longer.

This week we ask readers if they believe new pre-commitment legislation for poker machines will reduce the amount of problem gambling?
