A short description of your claims: I was contacted by phone in September by https://www.astralbet.com/ employee’s advertising promotional offer’s. October came by and I decided to play there and deposited $33,670 starting from 3/10/2017.

Willingly participated in Illegal advertising and taking bets from Australians

Hi tow1lly - welcome to ThePOGG.com!

Unfortunately there's nothing we can do to help you with this issue. This is a legal issue and it is the responsibility of the Australian government to police this legislation if they do not want their citizens gambling online. Unless there's something fundamentally unfair about the gambling transaction itself we would not intervene in this type of case.

Thanks,

ThePOGG
