Australian poker fans could be tempted to sign up to 888 for their late night fix after the calls of one local council.
Moonee Valley Council has called for establishments with poker machines to remain closed between the hours of 02:00 and 08:00.
The council included the call on its latest submission to the Joint Select Committee on Gambling Reform, the Moonee Valley Leader reported.
One council member, Paul Giuliano, also used the submission to question the thought process behind the location of many of the area's gaming venues.
"Whoever decides to put a venue somewhere always decides to put it where there (are) a lot of poor people," he told the Moonee Valley Leader.
Councillor Shirley Cornish added: "I'd like to see (that) as a council, we don't issue these types of permits for after hours."
According to figures recently published by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation, Moonee Valley's 11 pokie venues raised more than $11.7 million in the first two months of this year.
