    32Red has become the latest company to announce that it will cease operations in Australia after the country’s Senate approved a series of amendments to national online gambling laws.

    According to various reports, TTRpartners, the affiliate program that promotes 32Red and its associated brands, has informed affiliates it will no longer accept players in Australia.

    No new registrations from consumers in the country will be accepted as of today (Monday), while affiliates have been instructed to stop promoting the brands.

    Last month, the Senate approved the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016, which includes legislation that bans all internet gaming activities not specifically authorised within the new national codes, including online poker.

    888poker and Vera&John are amongst the operators to have already announced their exit from the country in response to the new legislation, while PokerStars previously said it would withdraw if the amendments were approved.

    This was published last year. It appears that it is becoming a reality for Australia.

    “Unconfirmed sources have speculated that players in Australia will soon no longer have access to Microgaming games at their favourite online casinos.”

    Due to shifts that are currently taking place in Australia’s laws regarding online gambling, big changes are likely to soon be made. It’s not yet clear which Australian online casinos will be affected by the potential move or if anything can be done to stop the changes from taking place.
