Australia’s pubs & clubs show mixed post-Covid gaming recovery

Gaming revenue in Australia’s pubs & clubs sector has shown mixed signs of recovery in the country’s three largest states, with Queensland and New South Wales surging back to above pre-Covid levels and Victoria struggling to catch up.

In this week’s Face-to-Face, Geoff Wohlsen of Wohlsen Consulting, which focuses on this sector, talks about the differences in the recovery patterns. He also discusses the ongoing staffing challenges in the sector and whether the pokies are as appealing to the younger generation as their parents.
