      The application doesn't want to connect with server. I also cannot access their site, since our gambling regulation office restricted access to the site. Has William Hill been banned from Slovenia?

      Yeah, you can not access the website from Slovenia. However, you're still welcome to play there if you connect via a VPN, for example.

      Hey wizo656,

      Tunatic may well be correct. It depends more on William Hill's policy than the Slovenian authorities.

      If Slovenia is still an allowed jurisdiction by William Hill and the site is being blocked by your ISP, then it would be OK to use VPN, but only to download or upgrade the client. If this is the case, then you should still be able to play without a VPN as ISP's only block the web pages,

      If William Hill no longer provides services to Slovenians, then it is not permitted under any circumstances. If caught, your account would be closed and your funds confiscated.

      The best thing to do would be to contact their support for clarification on their policy towards Slovenia.

      Regards

      Laz

      As I am from Slovenia and played there a few days ago, I can assure you, it's fine.

      By the way, regarding a VPN software, I recommend [Edited by Lazza61]

      Hey Tunatic,

      While we appreciate that you have the best intentions, we can't allow recommendations of VPN software on our boards as the use of VPNs is against the Terms & Conditions of all our partner rooms.

      Hope you understand

      Nope, that site doesn't work for me either. My ISP is Telemach, could they have blocked the site, but the other ISPs in the country didn't?
      Anybody know where I could download the client?

      I'm on T-2 and site which Agiz19 provided opens just fine, so it's most likely just Telemach that blocked this site. But they should probably tell their customers which sites they'll be blocking etc, so maybe they contacted you via mail but it got to spam or whatever.

      Amis here, also blocked. As I mentioned, get a VPN and you can access the site and download the software without any issues.
