In this article, I’ll give you a little background on Planet 7 oz and why it isn’t working for you.
We have recently been contacted by the owners of the online real money casino Planet 7 Oz regarding the closure of the brand.
“We regret to inform our players and our partners that we will no longer be able to provide a quality gaming site for our Australian brand and will be closing the website down for good.”
This comes as a big surprise for us but is also completely understandable after the Australian government started to put pressure on offshore gambling sites in the past few years. Also, the increasing number of total gaming brands and game software providers makes it difficult to compete in a part of the world with more pokies than any other country on earth.
Why and how is this happening?
The Australian government is effectively forcing companies to set up a special license for gambling, and this is how they are able to enforce restrictions and force some operators like Planet 7 OZ to close. It’s quite similar to the way alcohol, tobacco and other products are regulated, and it’s a good idea for any country that wishes to introduce a new online gambling product to have a policy in place that will govern the site’s operations.
It should be noted that the Netherlands has had an online gambling problem for some time now, and has been attempting to resolve it since 2004. The only difference now is that they are enforcing restrictions by setting up a system of licensing that requires people to be registered with the government in order to be able to gamble online.
This has a far greater effect on the players in terms of the amount they can bet and the gaming session duration. It also forces gambling websites to monitor players’ habits. All of these factors are also never enforced in the Crown Melbourne or pokies venues across Australia.
Although we are sad about them leaving we are also happy to see a number of new casinos accepting Australian players being featured, including Club Riches OZ Las Vegas, and BIZZO Casino. All of which have safe gambling tools and accept Australian Dollars and payments with Australian banks and have been tried and tested by our team.
If you need any help or guidance in any of these areas please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via our contact page.
I hope you have found this information useful and I wish you all the best in your search for fun and responsible casinos in the future.
Thank you for reading.
