Black Tuesday ? or rather Blue Tuesday Online Poker Shutdown in Australia??????

Recommended Posts

Poker Stars pop up message "WE ARE SORRY WE DO NOT OFFER REAL MONEY GAMING IN YOUR AREA"

What I was going to post is "Can this be a mistake? ? Is anyone else experiencing this issue" . However I am now convinced that Poker has now been blocked online in Australia. Only took us how many years to catch up to USA? Problem is the 1984-esque decision of Black Friday has been overturned. When does the next supply ship hit our shores with mail from the new land, from the colonies of the USA?

God save the Queen , because no forward thinking ,self respecting Australian will be looking to maintain that carcass.

Will try get some info and throw it up here ,if I disappear give Alex Jones a copy of this post mentioning the almighty c-orgy worshiping Bentley mobility scooter using Jesuit lap dog, and may Alex Jones have mercy on us all.

Vote YES on proposition 1 Australia is a backwater mess of legislation and yes men.

Try American's Card Room, they have good cash games and a decent MTT schedule with fair guarantees. Most importantly they are Reg friendly, which is more than I can say for the other US sites. The software is decent and they accept bitcoin from numerous sites for deposits and withdrawals.

Sorry to hear your country is suffering the same fate as ours. Good luck!

Now that the Casinos have been shutdown and many areas are effectively in lockdown with COVID-19 is there any move to reopen Australia (and other areas) to online poker. 

 

They (the government) claimed that the changes in legislation were not meant to include online poker and that it was just a casualty that could be easily fixed but here we are nearly 3 years later with zero action despite strong work from players groups to get them to act. 

 

Thoughts?

Just to clarify.. we have much greater issues with COVID-19 for governments and each of us individually and as community to deal with. Not suggesting in any way that online poker will be even on the radar of government in the current environment (and it should not be). My question was purely trying to establish whether there had been any change with respect to allowing us to access such sites in the past close to three years as the issue seemed to have disappeared for quite some time.

 

No doubt this virus is certainly the greatest challenge to modern man and our connectivity through travel, trade, and so forth makes us exceptionally vulnerable as a race. Wishing you all good health, safety, and looking forward to the day this virus is defeated.  Take care.
