Unable to Play

5 replies • Last post

Hi...Is anyone else having trouble logging into their favourite Casino in Australia. I can log in but unable to load the games. I have been told that the internet providers are blocking on-line casinos to Australians.

Yes, many online casinos are restricted to Australians. Somehow though, I suspect this may be like my favorite canned ham...

It is possible that a casino site is being blocked. The Australian government cannot and do not block sites themselves though. What they do is demand ISPs block sites on their behalf. Some do, some do not, and the blocks only work if you use the ISP's default DNS servers. So if you use a free non-Australian DNS service then nothing will be blocked.

A couple of well regarded free public DNS services: Cloudflare or Google.

Thank you CL-Ed. I appreciate your comment but call me stupid...have no idea how to use Cloudfare or Google in the way you mentioned. Better do some study I guess. Thanks again!

Yeah its actually a simple change to make. The trouble is in finding where to change the setting. If you change the setting on your ISP's modem then all devices connecting to it will use it. If you're using mobile phone data while you're out and about (as opposed to wifi through your modem) you will have to change the setting on the phone.

Here is some good info
