888sports Leaving Australia

Departure does not include online poker, however
Affiliate marketers this week reported the startling news that 888sports.com appears to be exiting the Australian market, basing their belief on an email from the company that advised them:
"Unfortunately, due to regulation changes currently taking place in Australia, 888sport will no longer accept sport bets from players located in Australia until further notice.
"As a result, 888sport will no longer be able to accept traffic coming from Australia and compensate our affiliates for such traffic.  This will go into effect on Wednesday, December the 19th, 2012.
"If you have already sent traffic from Australia to 888sport in the past, rest assured that your players funds are safe and secure and they can withdraw their outstanding balance at any time. Also, if they have any unsettled bets in their account, they will be able to withdraw any winnings upon bet settlement.
"Players from Australia will still be able to play at 888Poker.com and you will still be able to send traffic to 888poker.com. We apologize for any inconvenience."
