Online Poker Players in Australia are worried the game they love to play could soon be a thing of the past, due to new rules set to be passed in the coming weeks.
According to news.com.au, the prospective changes will mean offshore gambling sites will be forced to jump through strict new regulatory hoops in order to operate in this market. The amendments to the existing rules are expected to be voted on during parliament’s next sitting.
Online Poker fans worry that their hobby will become inaccessible under the changes.
Reports say that the amendment is designed to protect problem gamblers and prevent offshore companies skirting current regulations around live in-game betting.
