two up perth events

Two-up Perth locations – Official RSLWA ANZAC Day events and Perth pubs.

Two-up is a traditional Australian gambling game now traditionally played on ANZAC Day in pubs and clubs throughout Australia.

The relevance of Two-up on ANZAC Day is because Two-up is actually illegal except for ANZAC Day – over the last 30 years, every Australian state and territory has re-written gambling laws to legalise two-up on Anzac Day.

This unwritten ‘yet written’ rule of making it legal for one day only brings an added sense of mateship to events on ANZAC Day as friends, families and strangers gather around the ring to join in a sacred game that has been a shared experience with Diggers through the ages.

How to play Two-up?

The game is quite simple.

Players bet on whether the coins will fall with both heads up, both tails up, or with one coin a head and one a tail.

If you bet correctly you win.

There are a few more rules around the odds and what the spinner gets, but if you are just participating then the above is enough to get you started.
