LeoVegas has become the latest major operator to announce it is withdrawing from the Australian market in response to new gambling regulations.
Earlier this month, the Australian Senate moved to pass the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill, which includes legislation that bans all remote operators from offering online poker and in-play sports betting to punters in the country.
PokerStars, 888, PartyPoker and 32Red have already announced they will cease all real-money operations in the country, and LeoVegas has followed suit.
LeoVegas will officially stop operating on September 10.
The firm has warned its affiliates to immediately stop promoting their links in Australia, as it would breach the partnership terms, and affiliates will no longer receive revenue share from customers in the country.
