After further discussions with the Kiwi Casino Fraud Department it has come to light that there was a miscommunication regarding this player.

Kiwi Casino Management was of the belief there were further fraudulent reasons beyond initial game play which caused this player to be blocked as a bonus abuser. This, it is now known, was not the case.

Search engines with Australian domains, including Google are being investigated by authorities for possible breach of interactive gambling laws.

Australia’s Interactive Gambling Act 2001 prohibits advertising of gambling services on Web sites where “it is likely that the majority of that site’s users are physically present in Australia”.

♠ Banned services include online casino-style gaming services such as roulette, poker, craps, online poker machines and blackjack.

♠ Any gambling advertisement which appears on an Australian Web site is considered published in Australia.

♠ If a Web site that is targeting Australian users publishes an advert for a Web site offering online gambling services, regardless of where that gambling site is located, because the advert is published in Australia, the law is broken.
