    Default China to crack down on Internet gambling

    Reuters is reporting that China's Minister of Public Safety said that the country will crack down on online gambling, including the banks and Web sites that support it.

    Gambling has been banned in mainland China since 1949.

    From Reuters:

    The campaign will "concentrate on investigating major and important cases of online gambling, knock out domestic and foreign groups that organize online gambling, and severely punish the criminal elements," the statement said.

    The crackdown, to be conducted between February and August, was agreed to by eight government bodies including the Supreme Court, Propaganda bureau, the Central Bank and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

    Looks like this push is going to arrest anyone connected with online gambling in China. Works out well for the Government that controls everything, including the courts. We will only see guilty verdicts on the poor souls they round up.

    Yeah, they will do 2 things.

    Send their master hackers to disrupt the operations they deem illegal. Whether they sit in Costa Rica or the moon, the Chinese are capable of doing it.

    Second, hang a few hundred gamblers a month -- that will send the message.

    I have only one question regarding this:
    Is Macau outside China? Then how come Casino business is swelling in Macau, China? Macau is considered as the most happening Casino Hub of the modern times.

    Why is China taking double standards regarding gambling? Online gambling and land-based gambling play the same role. Then why on earth are they cracking on online gambling only?

    No.

    Yes.

    Because there is a lot more effort involved in breaking up a state monopoly than just talking about free markets in courts.

    Sorry for my bad englis language. But Macau - is former Portugal colony, like Hong Kong. Macau have his own law. Like Hong Kong - this is state inside state.

    From wikipedia:

    "The Macau Special Administrative Region (traditional Chinese: 澳門特別行政區; pinyin: omn Tbi Xngzhngqū; Cantonese Yale: Oumun Dakbit Hangjeng Keui; Portuguese: Regio Administrativa Especial de Macau), commonly known as Macau or Macao (pronounced /məˈkaʊ/, simplified Chinese: 澳门; traditional Chinese: 澳門; Mandarin Pinyin: omn; Jyutping: ou3 mun4), is one of the two special administrative regions of the People's Republic of China;"

    I'm tipping they'll come down a lot harder and faster than US authorities. Nothing quite like a good old Chinese crackdown...just ask Google, YouTube, Facebook, Chinese students, the Dalai Lama....

    not a question of efficiency. More that they aren't swayed by public opinion and seem to be pretty ruthless with execution of policy. If they don't like something they put an end to it.

    definitely more permanent. bullet in the back of the head accomplishes that quite nicely.

    Almost Here! How would you like to be able to get not just one sign up from your player, or even a couple, but every single casino they join from here on? I've a plan that can make that happen and it will likely also tell you every time the player is active within the casino.

    If everything is setup properly even they can be beaten...true legalization will only take place when the "illegal" sector is going to stay because it is impossible to get rid of it (the current "legalization" trend will end up in a rip off for every party involved except the states of course).

    He's a real person. He's just a malicious troll who's already caused havoc on multi-forums with his vindictive blitz of multi-accunting.
