This is a discussion on Will PS go back to Australia soon? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; PS just left Australia.
Those Australian poker players are funny.
They do not know how to deal with the issue.
Online poker is NOT illegal in Australia.
We'll see if you laugh if you are Australian. It's about greed in the state.
They can't properly tax it if the poker site makes a deal with a bank that they pay a fee to not need to have any cos ton deposits. This is untaxable then (the deposit fee is a fee paid ot he government as it's considered a retail tax of the gambling site or something) but if they make the deal like sites like PS and 888 do then they just pay direct to the bank but pay a monthly fee to the bank instead.
