Australian Mobile Sportsbooks - A Look at Mobile Sports Betting Options for Australian Punters

The latest betting apps released by Australia-friendly bookmakers aren't any different from desktop PC software packages in terms of functionality.

The Current Legal Situation in Australia

Australia has very liberal regulations when it comes to online sports betting. While the Interactive Gambling Act of 2001 made it absolutely illegal to offer real money gambling products to Australian citizens, it does have an exception for pre-match online sports betting, as this form of gambling wasn't considered "interactive" by the local lawmakers. This means that licensed Australian operators are allowed to run online sports betting sites that offer their services to Australia residents. Please note that the IGA makes it illegal for the bookmakers to offer live in-play betting to Australia-based customers. It's also worth pointing out that the IGA does not apply to individual bettors, which means that even if some sites violate those regulations, it is not illegal for Australians to use any iGaming sites. All things considered, Australia residents are essentially free to place their bets using any online sports betting platform that is willing to accept them.
