Illegal Australian Online Casino Targeted

The News Daily has investigated an online casino that is illegally targeting Australian players. The Emu Group Ltd. has been operating since 2012 with a registered owner who claims he knows nothing about the business and has no links to online gambling.

The casino offers a range of 800 casino games, including popular table games such as blackjack and a large suite of pokies. The site targets Australian players with its graphics, as well as payment methods that are user-friendly for Australians and customer support which can be reached via telephone numbers for centres in Sydney and Auckland.

It is illegal, under Australian law, to offer online gambling to Australian residents; however Emu Casino has been operating under three domain names – www.emucasino.com.au, www.emucasino.com and www.emucasino.net. The registered owner of the Australian domain is a hairdresser living on the Gold Coast.

Jeff Muller, the hairdresser, claims to have no knowledge of the casino and maintains that he did not even know the casino existed until he was approached by The News Daily. Mr Muller said that he is now taking legal advice to remove his company’s name from the casino’s Australian .com.au domain registry.

The News Daily is looking to get the website shut down and under the rules of the Australian domain name regulator, auDA, if a website is registered via deceptive or phony methods, it can be.

The casino’s official Facebook page claims to have more than 10,000 Australian subscribers and it promotes itself as Australian-owned. However, its shares are held in the names of two trust companies which conceals the identities of the real owners.

The News Daily has been following the paper trail of the casino in an effort to discover the identities of its real owners.
