Neither Taiwanese nor Japanese can currently boast of approved gambling laws. And although Taiwan has long created plans for casino recognition and even held a number of referendums on the subject, they have not come close to solving this problem. Japan, of course, will create a legitimate casino market, but, according to experts, this will not happen until 2025.
Remember that experienced industry casinos deny the rumor that Hainan Island, otherwise known as “Hawaii China”, will become the next casino hub in the country. Nevertheless, they affirm that the island can open the door for a number of sports lottery types.
The Chinese government is unlikely to allow gambling development on Hainan Island
The casino industry expert last week denied rumors that Hainan Island, also known as “Hawaii China”, would become the next casino hub in the country. Nevertheless, they affirm that the island can open the door for a number of sports lottery types.
In February 2018, it was learned that the Chinese government began to consider more carefully the issue of legalizing certain types of gambling on Hainan Island. And if the decision on this issue is positive, then, soon, it can complete the gambling monopoly in Macau. And then in April 2018, the authorities wrote that they legally legalized bets for horse races and a number of new sports lottery types and some card games like omaha10 which proposed by most of the Agen Poker in Asia. Nevertheless, sports betting is strictly prohibited in this country.
But now all the gambling formats, with the dispensation of two types of lotteries, are legally suspended in accordance with the gambling ban. Different forms of gambling are now only allowed in Macao, which is the only location in China where it is possible to play in a casino. With regard to Hainan’s introduction to gambling, the Chinese government views such stages, as economic aid to the island.
Remember that among the main events in the casino industry in 2018 is the opening in game mecca – the Chinese province of Macau, another megakurorta. It is a project of MGM China Holdings Limited – MGM Cotai Casino.
