Even though Australians are known for their love of sports betting and casino gaming, gambling restrictions in Australia are very tight. For instance, the Australian government recently forced major bookmakers like William Hill and Ladbrokes to remove in-play sports betting from their websites and apps. None of the major Australian bookmakers like SportsBet offer poker or casino games to their customers like is the norm in the UK and Ireland. As a result, many sports bettors in Australia are frustrated and looking for an alternative. The good news is anyone can now buy bitcoin over the counter at over 1,300 newsagents in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and throughout Australia to use at any of these bitcoin sports betting sites, casinos and poker rooms. Right now there is a 4% fee and the minimum amount you can buy is $50. The bitcoin can be purchased from Blueshyft iPad terminals that are commonplace at the checkouts of newsstands and other retailers all over Australia.
