The capital of the aspiring Republic of Western Australia has today been flooded by hordes of people looking for the Where’s The Gold and More Chilli style machines.

This comes after some cashed up New South Wales and Queensland Rugby League fans descend on Perth ahead of the 2nd State of Origin game tonight.

With the pinnacle of the greatest game of all* taking place tonight, the people of the Eastern Seaboard have a few hours to kill.

That has lead to thousands of blue and maroon clad league fans desperately looking for the VIP section’s of any of the local pubs.

“Yeah Swan River’s alright,” said one nonchalant Sydneysider who lists the pokies as one of his major hobbies.

“Apparently Cottesloe’s alright too, but I’ve got time and cash to burn,”

“So I’m gonna clean out some machines,” explained the man already on his 4th Bundy and coke.

It’s believed the influx of pokie machine revenue will be the largest hit to the economy since they discovered you could make a lot of money digging things out of the ground.

More to come.
