LeoVegas to Abandon the Australian Ship

Publish: 06.09.2017

With Australia set to implement the latest regulatory overhaul of the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill, the biggest operators currently doing business down under are packing their bags.

Scheduled to introduce some regulations and restrictions to online gaming operators, Australia is risking losing every single major big-name operator. The likes of PokerStars, 888, PartyPoker and 32Red have already announced they will abandon all real-money operations, and now LeoVegas is following in their footsteps.

The newly announced law regulations will ban all remote operators from offering online poker and live sports betting in Australia, and such legislation is bound to reshape the gaming landscape.

Operators currently working in Australia have thus far been able to provide in-play betting services thanks to a technical loophole which saw players place their wagers through their phones and not online.

The amendments to the existing law will be made fully effective later this month, whereas LeoVegas plans to jump off the ship on 10 September.

LeoVegas has already stated all of its affiliates to stop promoting their Australian links as it would breach the partnership terms which would prevent affiliates from receiving revenue share from Australian customers.
