The solution is to put all players on a slot debit card and put a time limit on play per day. That may not fly, but that's the first suggestion.
There's a point in the video where they run a video poker simulation and show that the peaks keep getting lower after successive big wins, and the downward slope of losing is large until the next big win comes along.
I'd ask if the slot machines are too tight for the players and mandate they all be raised to 95% to 99.5% payback.
Clarification: these aren't VP machines - these are slot machines. A "pokie" is an Australian term (and note the video is from "60 Minutes Australia") for a slot machine that uses A, K, Q, J, 10, 9 as symbols.

Yes, they refer to them as poker machines because of the A K Q J T.
