Gamblers at Melbourne's Crown casino have received swipe cards to avoid legal limits placed on pokie machines under special exemptions allowed by the Victorian government.

The cards, which allow faster spins and larger bets compared to limits on machines at pubs and clubs, are being offered to "loyal" patrons who can access as many as 1000 unrestricted machines, Fairfax Media reported on Monday.

"People gambling on pokies should never be encouraged to spend above their limit and we would be very concerned if that happened at Crown," Gaming Minister Marlene Kairouz said, but could not say if the James Packer-backed Crown Resorts received special treatment.
