Don't blame Rockstar for the ban because of shark cards. Blame the country you live in for being so backwards.

Because they're systematically banning the online gambling because of shark cards, but that doesn't and shouldn't be a part of the reasoning. Rockstar have many terms and conditions that appear on websites and during gameplay. It's backwards because they're not letting their citizens think for themselves.

They are blocking it because you can use real money to gamble even if by proxy of a virtual currency. This without any kind of oversight, the house literally determines everything and can change the betting odds at a moment's notice with you the player being non the wiser. 

 

Yes but those terms and conditions only regulate the contract between you the player and them and shield them from liability. Contract can't overrule national law however. There is a pretty self evident hierarchy.

 

You will have to expand on that last point. The regulations (except for countries with complete online gambling bans) don't prevent their citizens from gambling, they only make sure there is sufficient oversight (and taxes can be levied).

No that's exactly what they want. They had all the choice to not implement IRL money into the mix. They chose to screw people over for money. The whole reason the law is getting involved is because of company abusing peoples addictions.

Blocked in Portugal and I have no reason why. Gambling is legal in this country and so is betting so I really dont get the parameters that R* uses to ban countries from the casino games and wheel.

I was so hyped for this update that I bought a megalodon shark card and guess what here in Greece we are blocked and TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, I did that twitch prime promotion thing I took the money BUT when I checked at the site the penthouse wasn’t free. Absolutely disappointed...

I really hope that everyone who's been f*cked over never consider buying another shark card, I still don't understand why you would anyway. Shark cards are the reason for this and there are other ways to make money. There are so many misconceptions about money glitching. It's usually not difficult, it's rarely time consuming and it's low risk as long as you do it right. You can do it for years and never be caught, as long as you are smart about it. Trust me.

 

On topic. Has anyone on PS4 successfully bypassed the region-lock using a VPN? If so, how? I'm probably going to get a 30 day VPN trial on my PC and connect it to my PS4 over LAN. Is that the best method?

Working in Australia.  A little surprised as our rating system requires mentioning gambling if it's in the game (though in this case they'd probably cover it with "Experience may change online")

But Rockstar shouldn't be let off the hook either. They should at least come up with a solution to compensate the region locked countries. Choosing to ignore this is basically saying one huge f*ck you to those affected, and removing them from existence.

Used VPN and connected with Luxembourg server.

Gambling still not available for me.

So I guess it's blocked in Luxembourg too.

Not really.  Read dead gambling is allowed and still ongoing in south Africa. Although the casino games are blocked in gta

Thailand also blocked!! So disappointing 😭

python007 - have you tried "playing" the casino in a lobby set up by another player ?

On another tack I've been searching for GTA players in Thailand (PS4) to play heists,missions,etc.

Are you interested?

I remember seeing a message that said Shark Card money does NOT convert to chips during the GTASeries livestream yesterday.

 

So you can’t gamble that money *directly* anyway (if I remember correctly).

 

@Raavi Qatar is restricted as well if you want to add it to the list ( no surprise that is though lol). My friend over there couldn’t access anything.

A game where killing, theft, prostitution, counterfeit cash, growing weed, stealing banks is allowed, but don't try to add a little bit of horse betting in the mix or we'll have a problem! This is beyond ridiculous, and seeing the millions of players affected stupidly even more so gives them a reason to rectify this. The region locks don't even make sense for most of the countries are blocked. Gambling is FULLY legal in my country. What pisses me off even further is not even being able to spin the wheel because of this. NOTHING makes sense. Why can we spin the wheel in the arena war and not spin it here? Just screams laziness from them not to only block particular games and block everything instead.
