      Hi JJ

      I'm not from Australia, but Betfair have just spent the whole summer advertising at Australian cricket grounds, so I have a hunch the answer is yes.

      Although, I can understand why you might not have been watching. :P

      I got email response today.
      NO Aussies at this stage.
      Something to do with the law and the fact they are a bookie doesn,t permit them to offer certain kinds of gaming (poker) in OZ.
      So unfortunately is a definite NO to Aussie players at this stage.

      Cheers and Wealth

      Just another ridiculous, antiquated law no doubt harking back 50 years. What is the problem really?!

      This sort of nonsense goes on far too often.

      Give Kevin Rudd the hard word JJ and get him to sort out the mess!

      Why they write on their site they do get card from Australian just for saying 'no' on the email ?
      I don't those things.
