    2. Boyce has illustrated the insidious grip the pokie industry has on tasmania s government and economy with this well researched historic narrative It is written in a way that is engaging and enjoyable to read given the weight of the topic I hope that this book provides the stimulus for change at this pivotal point in time.


    3. Comprehensive coverage of the history of Federal Hotels in Tasmania and the unprecedented influence they have had over public policy for decades Absolutely essential reading for all Tasmanian s We can only hope for a change come 2018.


    4. Writtten in an easy to read, page turning style, this is a thoroughly researched, no holds barred, brutally honest exposition of the pokie monopoly in Tasmania A must read.


    5. Well written and a must read a revelation of corruption, politics and back room deals and of how one company has the licence to all the poker machines in Tasmania An eye opener.


    6. A fascinating insight into the interactions between government and the corporate world Enlightening but depressing as well Losing Streak should give Tasmanians a pause to think.
