Slot machines. Australia

Australia thrives in the casino industry. Australian slot machines are known as the most popular. Unfortunately, there are some legal issues with the gaming industry in Australia. However, a significant number of Australian players have the opportunity to open offshore online casinos. Therefore, Internet providers have a small selection of slot machines with Australian themes for these players.
Leading gaming software provider offers gaming machine diamonds. This name is given to Australia because it is located in the southern part of the Southern Hemisphere. And Australia has a large diamond industry. The symbol reflects the culture and fauna of Australia such animals as popular kangaroos and koalas and lesser-known crocodiles and lizards. The sign of the crossing of the kangaroo is a special flavor. The original Australian culture is the aborigine and boomerang and a can of beer. In the mountainous part of the theme are diamonds and a hammer. Many of the characters are fully animated and add visual appeal.

Australia lifts ban on casino cruises

Australia is known as a tourist country, popular for its sights and wonders of flora and fauna. In addition to all of the above, it is also recognized as a sports continent. One of the most common sports is the card game – poker. In Australia’s exotic and gambling business, there are about 18 of the largest casinos and 30,000 slot machines. In order for them to flourish, a mandatory agreement between the casino owners and the government is required. Each institution related to gambling should return most of the money to the loser. For example, if this is a pub or club that has a gaming machine, the return amount of the “consolation prize” is 85%, and already in the casino, it reaches 90%, I think this is not bad for visitors.

The government of Western Australia lifted its long-standing ban on casino gambling with immediate effect. The authorities hope that the new rules will make the region a more attractive destination for cruise companies.

The Minister of Tourism, Racing, and Games in Western Australia, Paul Papalia, said:

We are committed to expanding the cruise industry in the state through infrastructure regulation. Cruise shipping is a vital part of the tourism industry in Western Australia, bringing millions of dollars to the region’s economy every year and creating jobs.

In addition, the government has removed restrictions on gambling and has pledged to modernize the ports of Fremantle and Geraldton, and is currently working on other infrastructure issues.

According to the new rules, cruise ships will be allowed to place casinos with a minimum capacity of 100 passengers in the waters of Western Australia if they are at least 12 nautical miles from land.

But it is also worth noting that gambling can be offered only as an additional service. That is, cruise ships that operate solely for the provision of gambling services – the so-called floating casinos – remain prohibited.

As previously reported, France adopted a new law on the regulation of cruise casinos, which will come into force on July 1, 2017.
