The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is the smallest state in the country but don’t let its small size fool you. While it may be small, this is the most powerful state in the country, due to the fact that is houses our nation’s capital city, Canberra.
The majority of the state’s population, 400 000 people, live in the city and roughly 70% of the state’s land is undeveloped. This makes it a fantastic choice for people who like to be able to get out into nature, with many residents using bicycles for recreational purposes. Canberra became our nation’s capital back in 1913, and celebrated the 100th anniversary just a few years ago.
Australian Capital Territory Online Casinos
Online Gambling is perfectly legal in the ACT, as it is in other states in Australia. The Interactive Gambling Act of 2001 restricts companies who wish to operate an Online Casino within Australia, preventing them from allowing Australian residents from playing at their casino.
However, there is no law that prevents Australian Citizens from using the services provided by International Online Casinos, so players can go ahead and enjoy without fear of prosecution.
Australian Capital Territory Land-based Casinos
Your options for gambling at a land-based casino in the ACT are quite limited. This has no doubt aided in making Online Gambling so popular. There is just one land-based casino, which is located in Canberra and is called the Casino Canberra.
It is considerably smaller than some other Australian Casinos and there isn’t any accommodation available, while entertainment options are also limited. It does, however, offer around 40 table games, but there are no pokies. This is because Casino Canberra is the only casino in Australia that doesn’t have a machine license.
