Asian online gambling market is considered the most perspective in the world. This is not surprising given the size of this market. Despite the fact that the culture of Asian gambling is one of the oldest in the world, by far the majority of people of this region haven't wide access to gambling. In each country it is regulated in different ways, but in general gambling activity is under the government's global control or even forbidden at all.
Nowadays, when internet and gambling are intertwined tightly and appear in people's lives more and more, the public authorities can notignore this. Therefore, today a gradual and very slow liberalization of gambling laws in the Asian region takes place.
There are several legal forms of gambling in China. They are sports betting, lottery and slot machines. Mahjong, poker, casino games and sports betting from offshore sites are prohibited. All forms of betting in China must go through a special gaming commission.
Operators, affiliates, agents, etc. of banned sites and games are often arrested by the authorities. Online gambling on international websites is also illegal in China, but even Chinese police admits that it becomes increasingly difficult to find and track down the organizers of these games. It is even more difficult to forbid Chinese players to play on such sites.
As for Thailand, here gambling is regulated by several laws but in general gambling is illegal in this country. However, the local population does not always fulfill the law obediently.
In fact, there are only two forms of legal gambling in the country - horse racing and lotteries.
Since horse racing is more of rich people, and the lottery is not so interesting, locals often prefer to go to casinos in Cambodia, Burma and Laos. Thailand residents are also free to play both online and offline there.
But now Asian players appeal to gambling sites that accept them freely. We will discuss these sites below.
