Extensive Geo restrictions at Authentic Gaming

Authentic Gaming now have a live baccarat table. Multibet Baccarat they call it.

Authentic have been in the game almost 7 years now. For most of that time they have been a 1-game show – Roulette. Only recently they added Multiplay Blackjack.  With the addition of Multibet Baccarat they can now boast offering all three of the main games.

What’s it all about, (the Multibet part in particular) I hear you ask?

Unfortunately not sure.

I was quite keen to get a look at the game that has been 7 years in the making. But owing to my current location (Australia), was told on loading the game that it was not available in my territory.

Just to be clear, this was restriction imposed by the provider (Authentic), not the casino at which I was logged in (Dublinbet). I was able to access other games – just not any of Authentic’s.

Never mind (I naively thought). Time to work some VPN magic, change locations, and I’ll be laying multi-bets on Multibet Baccarat in no time.

Chose a nice grey market. Unregulated. Insignificant. Unlikely to be Geo-blocked.

Albania.

Same message received…

GAME NOT AVAILABLE IN YOUR TERRITORY

YOU TRIED TO OPEN THE GAME FROM A RESTRICTED LOCATION

COUNTRY: ALBANIA

CITY: TIRANA

Opened a few Evolution and Pragmatic games just to check it wasn’t a casino imposed filter. They opened and worked fine.

Moved to Brazil.

Perhaps Columbia?

At this point dogged determination set in.

My VPN lets me log in from 50 countries world wide. I ended up trying almost half of them: Albania, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, Greece, Hungary , Iceland, India, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico , Moldova, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK.

All unsuccessful.

Perhaps this was a bit of a tech glitch (Muliplay Blackjack was accessed from Ireland no problem). Perhaps it has something to do with Authentic’s recent acquisition by Scientific Games , due to complete early this year.

If it’s the former, hopefully it is remedied soon.

If it’s the latter, it does beg the question, who are Authentic currently letting play their games and will these restrictions be loosened any time soon?
