Appreciate the communication Swoop, hopefully you hear back at some stage to get an indication one way or another from Joey.

Crazy we still have thousands of Australians playing unregulated games. A complete stain on our "free" country.

Re: TAKE ACTION: Need urgent help to keep Australian online poker. Deadline 21 July #AusFight4P

Hey all

A friend of mine is doing a study, she's a psychologist; and is looking to differentiate between skill based gambling (poker, sports betting) vs luck based and the trends of various types of gamblers among other things. She's not anti gambling at all, and her brother is my best friend and a full time sports bettor like me and plays online poker etc.

If anyone has 5-10 mins spare it can only help us when these academic studies have a decent representation from online poker players/sports bettors/skill based thinking gamblers (recreational players welcome too obviously), if anyone has a few mins to fill it out i'd consider it a favour + I honestly believe it's good for online poker in Australia as she's an academic/psychologist who isn't anti-online poker and they're in short supply; studies like this could end up cited in future online poker legislative proceedings etc as a study showing online poker players have lower rates of problem gambling compared to house edge based forums of gambling and so on. The bigger the sample of self identified poker players in the study the more scientifically valid the data is etc.

Link to study (please fill it out honestly if you choose to participate, both recreational and serious/professional poker players and other gamblers welcome)

I haven't heard from Joey in months but working with a lnp friend to get online poker included in their Qld state platform he had me fill out a list of benefits it would provide and have done that etc

Not sure if anything will come from it but my friend is working on it and he's good friends with several LNP senators and MPs etc

Hopefully Joey is doing his thing behind the scenes as well but haven't heard from him recently

And cheers guys for filling it out

If you haven't participated, please give it ago. It's something that could be useful to us in the future.

Note the last nine questions are the most important in the study.

Also, like most studies, there is a monetary incentive, "You will have the option to enter a random draw to win $AUD $50 Wish gift card at the completion of the study."

Any potential active leads / ideas to kick-start the campaign again?

Very frustrating watching multiple live stops being moved / cancelled due to Covid without having a legalized online option to fall back on for those player pools (esp with all the WSOP online events that run).

Not to mention the sportsbetting ads that run every 5 minutes on TV. Every time I think about the ban it makes me angry.

Thanks to a wholly unrepresentative party now the former Xenophon party and now Centre Alliance (will probably lose their seat in the HoR next election). I still put the blame at his feet (and Wilkie) but also Turnbull being a soft liberal probably couldn't care less and was happy to exchange the amending interactive gaming bill for what he wanted support for.
