YOU’VE made the trek to Australia to follow the Three Lions as they battle it out for the Ashes.
The flight was a long one – you thought about attempting David Boon’s record of 52 cans of beer on the way, but the air hostess cut you off at three.
You’re on Australian soil. It’s hot. You’re sweating in places you didn’t even know you could sweat in. You’ve already run out of sunscreen.
There’s two things you have to look after next.
The first is a beer – the second is a punt on Joe Root’s men.
But how do you do it? Are you able to place a bet with your normal bookmaker from overseas? Can you join up at an Aussie bookmaker during your stay?
We’ve got the answers.

Can a tourist sign up with an Australian bookmaker?
Yes, you’ll be able to open an account with an Australian bookmaker while you’re in the country.
But you have to be smart, or you’ll run into problems down the road.
Technically, unless you can verify your account with Australian identification (ie. a licence, passport, birth certificate, etc), you could have problems when it comes to withdrawing later.
A solution around this is to ask one of your Australian friends to open an account while you’re in town. Alternatively, using a VPN blocker (depending on your SIM card, where you’re betting from, etc), you can start cashing in on big Australian specials, boosted odds and a more competitive market place for your business before you even step on the plane.
Another point to note: If you are betting with your phone, avoid using apps and bet through the online website instead – that way, you should never get blocked.
Check out our recommended bookmakers to find the best deal – if you’re backing the England test team, you’re going to need all the help you can get.
Can I bet from my UK account while in Australia?
You will not be able to use your mobile apps to bet with UK bookmakers while in the land down under.
Australia has taken this overseas bookmaker thing quite seriously over the last year or so. Internet providers will be stringent in blocking all smartphone applications. If Aussies can’t bet with overseas bookies, you won’t be able to either.
So how can it be done?
Again, if you’re on your laptop or desktop and hoping to access your UK account, you’ll need to use a VPN blocker. On your smartphone, if you are using your UK SIM card, avoid using your bookmaker app and instead use the mobile website.
