Its ridiculous that I cant go and play a $5 SIT AND GO, but can go and spend hundreds at the pokies or even other online gambling sites. Idiotic

By and large online poker players are educated to the game and play as a hobby with complete understanding that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. I've played 5 hours of poker trying to win a $20 buy in tournament. I'd hate to think how much I lose in 5 hours in my local pokie lounge with all the unquestionably addicted people there. The difference is the government is making a killing out of all those poor souls. Find a way to generate tax income from online poker and stop this ridiculous nanny state intervention!

Poker is gambling, but not the type of gambling that's designed to take all of your money (e.g. pokies). I find it a fun hobby that actually makes me some money rather than costing money.

Most people are very responsible with their gambling online and I personally believe the government has no right to do a lot of things which they do including this. Not On.

This is absolute bull****
I enjoy playing poker from my own living room as it means that I don't have to go out to a pub or club if I want to gamble a small percentage of my money.
This is bull**** nanny state garbage. You go to a club & all you bloody hear are pokies. There is no skill involved, you just sit there pressing a bloody button but as long as the tax keeps rolling in for the leaches that passed this Bill they're ok with it.
So far as I'm concerned this Bill will drive people into pubs & clubs who will then play the pokies.
This Bill is illegal in my view.
HOW DARE YOU prevent me from enjoying my own past-time by barring my from playing cards online.
HOW DARE YOU...!!!
