Creating a Poker Account in banned Region

MrNiceMrNice Red Chipper Posts: 99 ✭✭
Next year in my country online poker will be banned. I didnt found anything reasonable on the web to find a solution e.x. creating an account of another country. How can I proceed that I have a full functioning account in another country and also be able to withdraw?

    Move to a different country. I know that's not the answer you are looking for, but I can't imagine anyone is going to give you advice here on intentionally breaking the law.

    These sites use your IP address in order to see where you are playing. I would imagine you would have to go to another country in order to even play.

    @Jordan Power - Better be careful. If he is a cop he can use your IP address and come find you haha.

    So if I use a VPN from e.x. Malta I can play and use a full functioning account?

    I'm not sure of the forum rules but I would think that other people advising you on ways to evade legal strictures in your place of residence could be considered a bad use of the forum at any rate. While not advising you to seek out such advice, if you google around on this topic, I am confident you will find forums where people in you area have already discussed at length measures to evade the law.

    And thus you would not have to put RCP in any hot water with the Swiss. Those guys still have units who ceremoniously carry Halberts, don't they?! Scary...

    Or maybe Swiss Casinos will offer a coherent online poker game - maybe in association with big brand (Pokerstar, 888Poker, etc.) ?
    But for sure there will be some "float" in the online poker offer.

    Still, I think you just need a VPN and that's it ?
    Just watch out, because one thing come online gaming industry use to enforce such laws is to forbid the withdrawal of money on a credit card in a country where online gaming is forbidden.

    Yeah I don't want to have anything to do with any halberds. That said, from what I recall the only people in any legal jeopardy for helping you circumvent the law in this instance would be others resident in the same jurisdiction, particularly since Swiss neutrality has historically limited their involvement with bodies like the ECJ.

    All that said, Red Chip LLC does not endorse anyone breaking the law anywhere at any time.

    @TheGameKat : Don't worry, technically - at least for the Swiss law which will be enforced on Jan. the 1st - , it's not forbidden to play online, it's only forbidden to provide online games. So (Swiss users) can't break the Swiss law by providing advises on VPN and all, because the laws doesn't target them. This was explicitly discussed at the Swiss parliament, it's not a loophole: The point of this law section is to protect the Swiss casino industry again the "unfair competition" from the foreign online gaming industry - not put a sword of Damocles above Swiss users' heads. (Edit: and they will enforce that by blocking access to the concerned websites - surely by blocking the access of specific IP addresses.)

    So answering mgauch won't be a problem - at least for us Swiss residents :D

    Okay, thanks for that info. Basically the same as the US.
