playing online poker or gambling online in Australia
is illegal and a prosecutable (i think i spelled that right) infringment.
i am in the process of starting a local poker league and we have been sponsored for events and equipment. the problem is that the dept of gaming and racing in NSW Aust makes it impossible to get a liscence to do this.
as a result we can hold our events and charge entry fees that go towards the prizes but cannot charge players a fee that goes to our poker associaiton. we have to rely on players making a contribution (usually on entering cause some leave broke) to make ends meet.
It takes alot of my time to organise these events and i cant be rewarded for it.
If i was Kerry Packer (Aust's riches man and owner of Star City and Crown Casino's) therte would be no problem.
the poker industry in Aust has boomed recently fuelled by our Joe's $10 Million win.
