    I went to Videoslots this morning to use my weekend booster only to receive an error message whenever I loaded a slot. Went on chat where I was advised that as of today Videoslots will not be supporting Australian customers.

    Looks like its time to find a new hobby

    Working for me.

    edit: Although I wish it hadn't been- just lost $2300 on fruit warp at $5 spins with no feature, endless teases. On the last $0.10c left, feature.. what a shocker.

    Yes, Videoslots blocked deposit and play from Australian location, but that goes for all nationalities.

    You can just play via a VPN and it should work.

    Surely using a VPN will see you hit with a breach of ts and cs?

    And what is the penalty if Videoslots do not abide. How can the Aus government make such requests.
    Some answers would be nice please Dan.

    Extremely bad idea. Winnings could be confiscated.

    No, not in this case. They want to keep those customers.

    Hi guys,

    We recently got contacted by the Australian government and they requested us to make sure no players are able to play while being in Australia.
    Due to their request, we made some updates to our IP controller, to make sure no traffic from any nationality can deposit or play with us from an Australian IP. You will still be able to withdraw from an Australian IP.
    Your account will remain open and you will be able to continue to play when you log in from another location.
    I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    Br,
    Daniel.

    "Contacted" how officially, a friendly request? a demand ? what sort of penalty will you endure if you don't comply with their request? Just a few questions here, hope you can shed some light for us. Tia.

    I'm confused. Are we now banned from playing there, or are we still able to play there if we use a VPN?

    Unfortunately I knew this will happen. You know why? Because of Government want to collect tax from gambling for gambling revenue.
