        Hiya LCB'ers,

        I did a little research to find out just how many countries are banned from online gambling and to be honest i was surprised by the results. Of course some other countries may have certain restrictions that are not on this list like France or Canada for example.

        This list is basically countries completely banned from online gambling........

        Afghanistan
        Algeria
        Australia
        Bahrain
        Brunei
        China
        Cyprus
        Dubai
        Germany
        Greece
        Hong Kong
        Indonesia
        Iran
        Israel
        Japan
        Jordan
        Libya
        New Zealand
        Nigeria
        Pakistan
        Portugal
        Russia
        Saudi Arabia
        South Korea
        Sudan
        Taiwan
        Thailand
        The Bahamas
        Turkey
        United States
        Vietnam

        If there is any other countries or errors in the list please let me know.

        But it is crazy the number of countries that have full on bans. I had no idea there was this many!

        It's quite a long list Lips and yes, some of them are trying to regulate.  Should Russia be on the list?  Never sure about that one.

        I wonder why Australia is banned since that is where CasinoRewards customer support is based.

        thank you:-) It makes me wonder that Germany is on the list. I'm from Switzerland and we have usually most often the same laws here like in Germany. Fiedo is from Germany, i hope she dont get any problems to play online casinos!!!

        I hope so too,jschaub.
        Maybe she lives in the state/area where it's not effected.
        Is Switzerland restricted from any particular software(s)? if none, I can't help feeling a bit envious...heh!

        why cant the government go decide on important issues like how to steal more of the taxpayers money then to bother with online gambling.I feel they should be happy some people are at home on the PC instead of out with nothing to do.I know i would go crazy and then it would cost the government thousands to throw me in the  crazy house for life.

        Australians arent banned from gambling online. There are heaps of sports betting sites, the TAB, lotto etc. Theres a law that is supposed to stop casinos and poker sites from accepting Aussie players but since they are all overseas hardly any of them follow it. Theres no law against people playing though so if the casino allows you to you are fine.

        Thanks kaboom for your reply. I take it you are from Australia and would know best. I just read a interesting article where a law would allow the residents to charge back cc deposits at casinos.This would be risky business for the online casinos and would force them to deny Australians from playing.

        Have you heard any follow up on the ruling?
