New Internet Guide Provides Insight to Legal Online Gambling in Australia
Sydney, Australia, June 24, 2016 (Newswire.com) - In light of global evolution concerning the legal landscape surrounding online gambling, a new resource guide has launched specifically for Australian citizens. Once perceived as ‘shady’ by many, online gambling has finally earned its place in the legitimate entertainment market. This has driven an effort in many places around the globe to establish a legally sanctioned infrastructure to support a safe, high quality betting experience online. Australia is one region that has integrated Internet gambling into their culture.
As is the case with any nation that joins the online gambling revolution, there is a legal maze to navigate. There is also the presence of illegal gambling operations that pose as legitimate businesses in order to attract potential players. For these reasons, James Conway, who considers Australia his second home, developed an online resource guide designed specifically to assist Aussie gamblers in understanding the legalities surrounding online betting. “The complexities related to what is and is not legal when it comes to gambling in Australia can drive players away from this type of entertainment, or worse, cause them to end up at a dangerous or predatory gambling site” states Conway. “Our guide at http://www.legalgamblingaustralia.com/ can assist players in understanding what is and is not legal, as well as direct players to legally licensed and regulated gambling sites that accept Aussie players and deliver a secure, high quality betting environment.”
Conway went on to describe an instance several years ago in which a friend of his visited an online gambling site that appeared legitimate in every way, but that turned out to be a catalyst for simply taking his money and never honoring withdrawal requests when he won. It was indeed not a legitimately regulated destination and he was out of a hefty amount of money. It was then that Conway decided he needed to start educating players about the safest and most responsible way to go about participating in online betting."The complexities related to what is and is not legal when it comes to gambling in Australia can drive players away from this type of entertainment, or worse, cause them to end up at a dangerous or predatory gambling site" states Conway.
The development of this resource guide targeted several specific topics, including the gambling laws in Australia such as the Interactive Gambling Act of 2001 as well as how things are handled through regional gambling laws. Also included are specific guides for Australian online casinos, poker rooms and sportsbooks. The news section is intended to serve as an informational hub for those seeking the most current news relevant to gambling in Australia. Conway is confident that by arming players with data about online gambling, they can make informed decisions that result in the best possible situation for enjoying online gambling legally and safely. He stressed that his guide is not intended to replace professional legal advice or services, but rather to serve as an informational resource.
