"Huge News for Vietnamese Players
Vietnamese citizens will now be permitted to play in local casinos after the government approved a three-year pilot program on January 20th. The ban that prohibited locals from entering land based casino establishments will now allow them to play at Phu Quoc Island and the other in the Quang Ninh province.
The government passed a mid-March date that will kick off the three-year pilot program. During this period it will help determine whether the ban should be removed permanently.
Vietnam players either go to other countries to enter casinos or place bets illegally online and as a result, the country has been losing millions in potential tax revenue."
