It is hilarious though because here in Poland there's loads of places where you can gamble, and i'm not even talking a nice casino where you'll get free drinks and fancy service, lots of them are like shipping containers with a few slotmachines thrown in.
So you're allowed to go there and waste your life, but having a go at the virtual slot machine in GTA with some of your virtual dollars is where they draw the line.

Until I know how this region checking goes, I'm not confirming the new EULA and stuff, so can't goto online... I'm not interested in gambling, but I do like to be able to 

use the spinningwheel to win prices, especially to have a chance to win that supercar, instead of forking out once again hard-earned ingame cash. 

 

I play through steam, so can change my land setting to another country than Belgium and see how it goes. Think France is unrestricted with its gambling rules. Then again, I ne ed to be sure to pick an unrestricted country in Europe. Don't know if you can change again when it's a miss...

 

I was able to bypass the lootboxes limitation in Apex Legends by setting my home country to the Netherlands, but if it's a gaming-service, I guess your IP will be checked. Difficult to change/block that… 

 

If I can't bypass this limitation, I have almost zero incentive to play this dlc… It'll be just another new location/interior/garage to me... Sadly...

They could've at least let players from Poland buy those damn casino chips, we can't even access the damn casino shop.

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

Could there be some issues regarding the servers that is blocking the content in countries that shouldn't be blocked?

 

As I speculated earlier, countries whose laws permit online gambling but still are blocked and now combined with countries whose laws prohibits it, leads me to believe that either the servers are experiencing issues with this, or R* has messed up the application of this block.

Poland here, I'm able to buy chips and spend them, even exchange them back to dollars, but can't use them to play games.

I think it's the same countries that also don't allow gambling in Red Dead Online.

Someone here has tried with a VPN ?

 

I would like to have some feedbacks before to register to one, to be sure that it works well.

I suppose that makes sense, R* is using the same service for both games then.

 

@Raavi A Romanian user in another is reporting that the casino is blocked in his game as well, you might wanna add Romania to  list as well.

 

Any Brazilians in the thread? I can't check out my game now but I suppose it's blocked in here too because our gambling laws prohibits almost everything.

I added Romania to the list before but then saw other Romanians saying it wasn't blocked and removed it. Such a mess.

Sounds like either people are getting too confused, or indeed there are bugs at play here.

You still can buy chips and use them in the shop to get the new clothes and stuff for your penthouse. Is better than nothing, i have read that the polish people cant even buy chips

Weird, I'm also from Poland and I can't even buy casino chips. Maybe you have random IP numbers that are not from Poland? But you still can't play since your SC account detects your country? Just a theory.

Well I tried using windscribe VPN but every time I turn it on and try using it "R* servers are unavailable right now", If I turn if off servers are back online. Any tips?

edit:
Ok PC servers are down, not related to VPN. 


edit2:
well... now it works without VPN but with VPN it still can't login... help?

The only thing blocking me from gambling is lack of sleep because of the hot weather (UK) and not knowing the rules to the card games. I'm running on fumes.

Well good news: I can gamble on anything in the Casino with my main account that is registered in the USA since I made it over 10 years ago.

 

I have yet to check my secondary account, which is registered in Brazil.

Can someone try something for me?

Can you change your Consoles location to the USA and try and gamble? Or change your accounts address to somewhere in the USA and try to gamble. I know you can change locations on Xbox, people use it to get games and DLC early.

 

Also try changing it on Social Club as well. R* can't be held accountable if you lie on your paperwork so they might not care and it might be a workaround.

There is no option to change your country on PSN, this is why I registered my main on USA, so I could get some contents that were not available 10 years ago to my country.

 

I always wanted to change it, but alas now I'm glad for this :)
