We all know that Australians are making big strides in providing true freedom to their citizens with regards to online casinos and gambling. This is great news for the local Aussie who wants to play a little online pokies for real money. We believe that online gambling has received a bad name for no good reason. Many companies out there are using the same techniques to create the same brain response in their games but they extract money from their clients through in-game purchases. At least at an online casino someone knows what they are getting themselves into before they sign up. These games that induce a GABA response and then ask their players for money without advertising ahead of time with warnings that money is requested of their players are just taking money from their clients through a back door. When you enter an online casino you know exactly what you are getting yourself into. Casinos make it very clear they are there for entertainment purposes only. There are very few big winners. A few hundred reals of online pokies (real money) roughly costs a player the amount of a movie ticket. On average it is cheaper to play online pokies than to go to your local arcade. While Australia is one of the most open countries to online gambling there are still those in government that would shut it down all together. While we believe in moderate regulation, completely banning a pastime that is already extremely popular in the country would drive people to risky unregulated businesses. The Australian Betting Organization at is a perfect example of an organization that balances the rights of people to gamble online, tries to help those who don’t have self control of their pastime, and follows Australias gambling laws. They have a great page about online pokies (real money) at http://www.australianbetting.org/gambling-online/online-pokies/.
There needs to be a balance. There shouldn’t be too many restrictions make on online casinos, bookmakers, and other online gambling companies throughout Australia. If too many restrictions occur that don’t provide an actual benefit to the citizens the industry will quickly go rogue. You’ll notice that rogue casinos already exist throughout the world and it is because the governments have made a market for them. Are we not already familiar what occurs with prohibition? It’s frustrating to see people who are so bent on their crusade that they end up hurting the people they pretend to protect.
