An interesting gambling tradition in Australia:

Today is Anzac Day in Australia! Anzac Day is a celebration that commemorates veterans, military members, and others who’ve served or lost their lives in service of their country.

It’s also the only day that the Australian gambling game called ‘Two-Up’ is legal!

Watch how the folks ‘down under’ celebrate their Anzac Day.
