It appears that a significant chunk of this update is blocked off in a quite a few countries, restricting players' ability to buy any chips let alone do any gambling. Let's compile a list of countries here. OP will be updated regularly.

 

Region-Locked countries

 

Poland

Portugal

Greece

Czech Republic

UAE

Kuwait

Argentina

South Africa

KSA

Israel

South Korea

Vietnam

China

Lebanon

Thailand

Pakistan

Cyprus

I also wonder how the blocking works.
Based on current location according to IP trace, or based on some of your account settings, or perhaps based on the region where your game was purchased.
Not that i care too much about the gambling aspect, but still interesting to know.

Makes you wonder why they pressed ahead with this theme. They would have been aware that the content wouldn't be available for people in various territories. What a shame (meant sincerely)

Sooo... any VPN recommendations? 

Something that won't lag the game even more? Doesn't have to be free but it would be nice.

It's the link of Chips > GTA$ > Shark Cards > IRL Money. I'm 99% sure that majority of the countries (exc. Belgium) what have at least been able to do this stuff too if they never linked IRL money to Chips. Why bother making another currency only to be the same. Just to think, they sat down at a meeting and got the choice of allowing most people (who are also fans and supported them) to play this new update after also waiting so long... or screw them and link the shark cards. If this doesn't wake people up that R* and business do not care about you, only your wallet, I don't know what will.

Hi all,

 

Blocked in Vietnam.

I'm a little bit angry that Rockstar couldn't find a way to avoid this restrictions. Like earning chips like we earn Dollars or RP during missions or jobs. 

 

Is there a way to solve this problem when you play on PS4 ?

You can earn chips in missions but because you can purchase them with IRL money, it's a no no..

I can understand that Making profit for Rockstar is the most important goal. But the fact to link Chips to real money is a no no for a big part of the world. It ruined my mood ahah

China is a no go.. It's weird because i'm on East Coast servers with buddies, but I guess my IP/ISP says neeeeeeeoooope.. I'm guessing I could access the gambling ability with a VPN. All I have is my laptop here in Jinan. Anyone have a step by step tutorial on how to load my Express VPN on to my PS4?

It's a game service that request and check your country.

@MaxSaigon @Fun 2 I'm currently speaking with a representative of Express VPN trying to link my VPN to my PS4 in hopes this solves the problem. I'm not so concerned with the gambling as much, though it would be fun. I more so desire the ability to spin the Wheel for prizes. As it would seem.. Unfortunately for me being in China. I am unable to link my VPN using a DNS setup because I would have to disconnect the VPN for a moment, which when reactivated will not be the same address. I was informed I can purchase a VPN router, which would solve my problem. Here's a link for others to use. Maybe China is the only country that this would a be a problem for. Hopefully others can utilize this method to loophole around the problem https://www.expressvpn.com/support/vpn-setup/stream-to-ps4-with-dns/#hostname

Would've been so easy to make chips an earn-only currency, but nope, gotta get that shark card money, restrictive country residents be damned

That's interesting, because gambling is banned in Turkey, but I can purchase chips and play table games with my Turkish Social Club account.
