Occasionally, players are restricted from signing up to a gambling portal such as an online casino and this is quite often because of where the player is located.

Apart from being underage or perhaps you accidentally filled in the wrong information during the application process, the other main reason a casino could deny you the chance to sign up with them will be because of the country in which you reside. This is otherwise known as a player location restriction (or restricted territories).

Sometimes is it the country that will not allow you to sign up with the online casino, but other times it is the casino that will restrict you because of the country that you live in.

You may notice a few precautionary measures trying to stop you, but allowing pop-ups for example will let you continue playing online poker or online roulette in the online casino you are already registered with. Some countries are very strict on not permitting online gambling in any form, but most of the time these countries have very few authoritative organisations that actually clamp down on the owners/operators of gambling portals, or the individuals themselves who play at these sites.
