Being the distant dream-like island for most Europeans, Australia has always been associated with the mystery. Today Australia is known as the tourist country and extremely popular for its tourist attractions. The sub-tropical climate, the unusual and somewhat strange flora and fauna are also the most popular topics to discuss. The motto ‘everything in Australia wants to kill you’ has become viral together with pictures of local spiders and snakes.

In addition to all the above Australia is also the recognized sporting continent. And one of the most common types of sports here is obviously the card game – good old poker. The exotic and gambling supportive Australia has about 18 major casinos and nearly 30,000 of the various slot machines. In order to operate without any problem and legal issues the obligatory agreement between the casino owners and the government is required.

Thus, every institution, which is pertaining to the gambling activities of any type is obliged to provide players with the refund. The player who loses the bet gets back the most of the money he was betting. For example if a pub or a club has the slot machine on property, the amount of consolation prize (or as they call it ‘return’) is about 85%. At the land-based casinos this amount goes up to 90%.


Laws and Regulations

The Interactive Gambling Act adopted by the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia in 2001 regulates the great part activity of gambling in Australia. By 2011, online gambling sites in Australia were able to provide services to both foreign and local residents. But the government has decided to protect Australians from the harmful effects of virtual gambling and adopted a new law. According to this law the gambling services may not be available to Australian citizens.

It is the same law that puts the ban on advertising of gambling sites in Australia. The violation of the law will cost $ 220,000 for individuals and $1.1 million – for the legal entity. But at the same time companies can advertise their services to citizens of other countries.

The government has repeatedly raised the issue of amending the law and liberalizing the online gambling. But as long as those in power have ardent opponents of gambling there would be little to no changes.

Despite the prohibitions and restrictions on the gambling activities in Australian region, the online casino sites are very popular and Australia is recognized as one of the world leaders in the number of online casinos.
