They turn a “blind eye” once a year. The exact origins of 2-UP are obscure, but it seems to have evolved from pitch and toss, a gambling game involving tossing a single coin into the air and wagering on the result. If you’re looking to try your luck this ANZAC Day we have a list of venues here that will be hosting 2-UP.
“Two-up is a traditional Australian gambling game, involving a designated “spinner” throwing two coins or pennies into the air. Players gamble on whether the coins will fall with both heads (obverse) up, both tails (reverse) up, or with one coin a head and one a tail (known as “odds”). 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”
