    The Singaporean Parliament has put forward legislation known as the Remote Gambling Bill which will, if passed, criminalize all activities associated with online gambling.

    Not sure about casino and poker, but wasn't online betting already illegal in Singapore? I had a friend who was sent to prison for six months because he was taking bets online (via a broker I guess). But he was a naive victim he said as he was caught accidentally, and shared the cell with real criminals, people who run betting syndicates and were rolling millions.

    It's stupid to go to jail because you choose to play online with your own money. It's all about the state monopolizing the market and Singapore is actually a rich country, one of the few countries in the world with no external debts.

    Edit - pissed up and read that wrong. not sure but still think there is licenced online stuff like their lotto ect that is fine. can still read my origianl comment though for clarity on how much i read it wrong


    absolutely not, although there is a bit of weirdness. My mate lives there and me and another pal went the big casino at a hotel i've forgot the name, the one with the 3 towers next door and the boat across the top. anyway, we had to take our passports to get in to prove we weren;t nationals from there, then got in free, Singapore nationals had to pay $50 or $100 something like that as they dont want the locals getting into all that, but dont care if johnny foreigner loses a fortune there

    Singapore has a state monopoly on online gambling with the Singapore Pools (Sports/ Lottery).
    http://www.singaporepools.com.sg/en/Pages/index.aspx

    As with all state run monopolies ... the service is so-so and the odds are terrible ... running at an overround of around 113%.


    So most serious gamblers either bet with cash at back-street bookies or have online accounts with international shops. The new laws are designed to give the government the power to block access to these websites. Any serious gambler will continue with a proxy - but it will stop casual gambling use.

    It will be interesting to see if some affiliate websites also get blocked ... I've noticed that GoonersGuide.com is blocked in some countries in the middle-east, based on my regular test at airports ! Amazing how censorship works ...

    The draft law prescribes penalties for individuals placing bets online, as well as operators accepting those bets.

    Individuals caught gambling online or over the phone face a fine of up to S$5,000 and/or six months’ jail; the same penalty applying for illegal gambling under the old Betting Act and the Common Gaming Houses Act , ie gambling in an establishment that isn’t the Marina Bay or Sentosa casino.

    If I am in Singapore or a Singaporean then I am pretty much to obey their law.
    They are sure thing tight about these kind of things, which is on the other hand kinda admiring.

    Yes. The Singapore is one of the biggest gambling city in the world. They gambling revenue more then gambling
    revenue in Las-Vegas. They have only 2 casinos, but this is the largest casinos on the world.

    Singapore's dramatic emergence as a casino gaming centre is a prime example of new territories entering the market. Revenues have surged from zero in 2009, to US$4.4 billion in 2011 and a predicted US$7.2 billion by 2015. The improvement in transport links to key casino gaming markets and the easing of regulations is also contributing to the increase in revenues.
