LeoVegas to exit Australian market this month

Online casino operator LeoVegas is officially exiting the Australian market, following the introduction of the country’s new online gambling amendment bill.

According to Casino Guardian, the online gaming company told its affiliates that it will stop providing services to local Australian customers due to the new laws. Exiting players will no longer be able to access the casino website starting September 10, 2017.

The company has also advised its affiliates to stop any affiliate activity aimed at the local market, as such would breach their affiliate Partner Terms and Conditions.
