Anzac Day events may be cancelled due to Coronavirus restrictions, but Territorians can still conduct their own dawn services and even play two-up at home.
Residents are being encouraged to commemorate April 25 in isolation and can legally play the traditional Australian gambling game – but only with the approval from a local RSL club.
The Gaming Control Act 1993 states that Two-up can be played legally only on April 25, provided it has RSL approval and any profits go directly to the club.
Two-up is a traditional Australian gambling game, involving a designated “spinner” throwing two coins or pennies into the air.
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.
It is traditionally played on Anzac Day in pubs and clubs throughout Australia, in part to mark a shared experience with Diggers through the ages.
