Would be so much easier if it was the same everywhere, but I know I’m being naive.

@spinmaster
Yes, unfortunately. That’s as likely as noone on the planet trying to cheat.

To me, it still looks like Europe is the best continent for gamblers. The US have cut down so hard when they stopped online poker and everything ten years ago, and too many Asian countries are criminlaising all gambling, while Africa just doesn’t have the technical infrastructure. Europe ftw.

I was in a holiday resort in the Bahamas once. All the dealers are locals, but locals are completely forbidden to gamble. Some jurisdictions are quite absurd.

I would assume that many muslim countries have pretty harsh restrictions on gambling, but still want to keep the toruists. Same goes for far East countries like Vietnam or Cambodia.
And I know these are not muslim countries.

Happy to live in a part of the world that allows gaming. People will gamble anyway, if you allow it or not. But it’s better this way.

In the Philippines, the casino industry operates legally under the regulation of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR). Established in 1976, PAGCOR functions as a government-owned and controlled corporation responsible for overseeing both land-based and online casinos. Under its jurisdiction, PAGCOR licenses and regulates casinos and gaming establishments across the country, ensuring that they adhere to strict legal and ethical standards. Online casinos, or Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs), have been authorized to operate since 2016. However, controversy surrounding their location and taxation has caused some debates about their legitimacy. Nevertheless, Philippine laws allow and regulate both land-based and online casinos, and the government continuously monitors and updates the guidelines to ensure fair and safe gameplay for both players and operators.
