Australian Online Casinos

Jul 14, 2008
The popularity of Internet gambling has increased tremendously over the last decade and has spread all over the world. Australia is no exception to this phenomenon. Today Australian players can log into any online casino anywhere in the world and gamble there from the comfort of their homes. However Australian players have some marked advantages in playing in Australian online casinos and poker rooms. For one, these casinos accept Australian Dollars as currency and that is very convenient for Australian residents. There are no hassles of exchanging currency and the losses due to exchange rate fluctuations and bank commissions. Another advantage of playing in Australian online casinos is that the funds transfers are much smoother and take less time. Whether the player is funding his casino account of withdrawing from it, the speed of the transaction is of essence and this is where the local online casino scores.

One of the most popular Australian online casinos is au.888.com. It is the online home of the famous Australian former cricketer and now poker player. Apart from the casino au.888.com runs other online gaming activities such as poker, backgammon and bingo. The casino offers games in both download and no download formats and covers the entire range of casino games such as blackjack, roulette slots and video poker. Poker is one of the most popular games in Australian online casinos, with Texas Hold'em being a hot favorite. There are a number of poker tournaments and progressive games on offer and also bonuses and other regular features of online casinos all over the world.

Australian online casino players have their own online communities. Details and reviews of Australian online casinos can be found there. These communities offer various features such as news and casino forums. The latest events that are taking place at the various casinos are displayed in the news sections. Players can exchange their views in the forums. Online Australian players, and players from other countries as well, who want information on Australian casinos, both online and brick and mortar type, would do well to join such communities.

Online slots are one of the most popular games in Australian online casinos. In Australia online slots are known as "online pokies" or just "pokies". In fact one of the largest slots manufacturers, Aristocrat, is an Australian company. Pokies are generally five reel, multi-line video slot games all of which have a bonus game of some sort. Konami is another pokies manufacturer that is very popular. Some of the popular slots games in the online casinos are Queen of the Nile, Indian Dreaming and Mr. Cashman.

The proliferation of Australian online casinos has been inhibited to a large extent by the gambling laws that are administered by the ACT Gambling and Racing Commission. Though the laws do not now prohibit online gambling they put such cumbersome responsibilities on the online casino operators that very few companies are venturing into this field. Even those like au.888.com have registered themselves in Gibraltar so as to avoid being in Australian jurisdiction.
