Gamblers Speak Anonymously March 25, 2014

Struck by an anonymous letter about VLT usage emailed in from a person writing under the name “John Doe,” The Telegram launched an investigation into his/her written observations of a lack of detailed reporting of VLT numbers by the Atlantic Lottery Corp. and, more importantly, claims the true impact of the machines was being hidden as a result.

The Telegram found evidence of single VLTs in the province taking in more than $600,000 in cash in less than a year and began to collect stories of continued abuse of VLTs, despite a provincial government push, beginning in 2005, to curb problem usage.

As the stories have been published, people have contact the paper to share their stories as “John Doe” did.

The Telegram encourages anyone who wants to share their story, offer a comment, or raise a concern over VLT use to email: afitzpatrick@thetelegram.com.
