After vigorous campaigning, the AOPA will now have their chance to be heard with the government holding a senate inquiry on the subject, “Participation of Australians in Online Poker”.  Players can express how this new law will negatively impact Australian online poker and its players.

To help win this fight, AOPA is requesting for Australian poker players to answer the queries below (from their own perspective) and submit before the closing date of July 21, 2017. You can make your official submission online below:
