I know this post isn’t forex related, but I thought it might be interesting for our Australian clients out there. There is legislation in Australia that prohibits people from betting in-play from the internet, you can still place a bet, but you need to physically call the operator and do it over the phone (major pain in the ass). So if you’re like me and enjoy the ability to get in and out of your bets online this restriction means it all becomes just a bit too hard.
By chance, I recently found a loophole to this restriction while using one of our VPS’s. I found that if I log into a betting site (I use betfair.com) using our VPS’s browser it allows me to bet in play.
I even log into the VPS from my phone and place bets from my mobile on occasion.
My suggestion would be to rent a lite VPS in New York, it’s the most affordable and will give you the best usability.
You’ll then be able to enjoy the full freedom that in-play betting was intended for!
