Most Casinos will put in their Terms and Conditions that it is the player’s sole responsibility to inquire about the existing gambling laws and regulations of the given jurisdiction before placing bets on the website that the customer is located. Mela, we find this statement a little bit on the ‘cheeky’ side and think the onus should be on the operator to ensure that people are gambling legally in their jurisdiction.
We like it when Casino Games providers take initiatives like this to block people playing games where the law states they shouldn’t and we will always speak highly of operators and Casino Games providers who work within the law.
If you are not sure about the legality of online casinos in your country or jurisdiction then you will need to do a little research online. We are not liable for any information or advice to the legality of gambling laws in different jurisdictions.
We hope that one day harmonisation will happen and we can all operate under the same gambling laws however the likelihood of this happening is extremely remote. For example in the USA, gambling laws were passed in 2003 – the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) effectively banning online gambling. Since those laws were passed, 3 US states have relaxed those laws yet the other 47 stated remain bound by them.
