I received an email from Pinnacle Sportsbook this morning stating that they are withdrawing service from Australia. I know that casino, and sports live betting are both banned by Australian law, but I thought that the sportsbook in general was OK? So I am surprised by this - but perhaps they had problems segregating the live betting off from the pre-kickoff lines ? Anyway - has anyone else received the email (shown below)? Any comments ? ---------------------------------- Source : I received the following email : Email Title -> Important announcement regarding Australian accounts Email Content -> Due to regulatory changes, we will not be able to offer our services to residents of Australia, which also include Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, Heard and McDonald Islands and Norfolk Island.
