    Poker players in Australia are currently learning the value of bitcoin poker rooms. The Australian government just passed legislation that bans online poker. This has resulted in popular poker rooms like PokerStars, PartyPoker and 888 announcing that they will be banning players from Australia. This will surely cause a dramatic increase in the popularity of bitcoin poker sites who care little about borders and Australian laws.

    Absolutely correct, I'm from Sydney and I was kicked out of all the major poker room last year so now me an my friends mostly play poker at cryptocurrency poker sites. Many of my mates didn't own any crypto until this happened so it has been great for converting people to bitcoin. The biggest loser has been the Aussie tax man who now earns nothing from online poker.

    Wow, I didn't realise that the Australian government were as big a jerks as the United States government when it comes to online gambling. So which online poker rooms are still available in Australia, now that all the fiat money sites have left?

    Another big advantage is bitcoin poker rooms will soon be able to accept Lightning Network payments. Instead of depositing $100 at a poker room, you'll simply be able to transfer a couple of dollars instantly to play a few hands. Can't wait. The first Lightning Network compatible poker room gets my business.
