It's not over yet.
She ain't singing yet.
All the Australian Poker Community ever asked for was a ‘chip and a chair’ in their fight to keep the game legal in Australia. It seems that their hard work may have paid off with the door now being pushed back open for online poker to be legalized down under.
A call to hold an inquiry into the online version of the game passed the Australian Senate last week 46 votes to 22.
The inquiry called for a review of the game to be handed down before September 14, 2017, meaning it may pave way for the recent Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill, which spelled the end for online poker, to be amended before it finally passes through the parliament.
