    Default Gambling Advertising in NSW Australia

    I have received an email from one of the sportsbook licensed in Australia that I work with that from May 28 it will be unlawful to advertise any offer which contains an inducement to any person located in New South Wales to participate in any gambling activity. And It will no longer be adequate for such advertising of such inducements to contain an “Excludes NSW” type disclaimer.

    And the kicker, affiliates and operators will be required to geo-block people located in NSW (according to their internet protocol (IP) address) from accessing or viewing any gambling advertisement which contains an inducement to gamble!!. Talk about overkill, things are getting worse in Australia for affiliates and operators alike.

    Has any other affiliates working with Australian sportsbooks heard about this?

    This is very unfortunate and I haven't heard of this before. The only thing that I am aware of is that there is an increasing number of casino operators who are being blocked from paying their affiliates and customers alike through web-wallets such as Neteller and ecoPayz here in Australia. I agree with you when you say that things have become more difficult than they used to be.

    That's true, pokeraussie, although before all of these restrictions came into effect, there used to be many more sports betting ads.
