LeoVegas Announces It's Leaving Australian Gaming Market

Internet casino LeoVegas has announced that they've made the decision to leave the Australian betting market due to stricter gaming regulations within the country.

The move comes after the Australian government approved the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill, which bans remote gaming sites from offering their services from within the country. LeoVeas will stop offering their services in Oz on September 10th, and the company has already told affiliate sites to stop sending traffic to them from the country.

Several prominent betting sites have left the Australian market, including 888, 32Red, and PokerStars. This has left a vacuum, which is being filled by less-than-reputable casinos that are more likely to scam players.

LeoVegas players from the country are urged to withdraw funds from their accounts.

It really looks like most casinos are leaving Australian market. It's quite sad that so many good casinos are leaving, hopefully there will be something left for the Aussies.
