    I recently tried to sign up to an online poker room, but was told I couldn't as I am Australian. Is this a problem at many sites? Should I just put in a fake address?

    The site most likely would have been based in Australia. Aussies can't play on Aussie based sites unfortunately. I believe they will check IPs so a fake address will not help you.LUke

    Australian law says its illegal for online sites to offer casino style gaming to anyone psychically present in Australian but its only those that are based in Australia that our law has any real power against. Thats why sites like centrebet poker dont even let you see the poker homepage. Playing online is perfectly legal, the law just tries to stop the supply.

    simpleaussies are the worst playersever wonder why no aussie ever wins a wpt?? hence most online sites only want good players, not chumps who know nothing about the strategy part of poker.

    of course you can just go through a proxy to hide your ip address.
