Certain areas of the Shoalhaven will be receiving no additional poker machines for the foreseeable future as they’ve been labelled high risk.

In a State Government overhaul of the gambling sector, clubs in Nowra, Milton/Ulladulla, Mollymook, Sussex Inlet, St Georges Basin, Erowal Bay and Culburra Beach will be included in the poker machine cap.

The zones were decided with the help of socio-economic data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics with the new restrictions designed to crack down on problem gambling.
