Japan on the Road to Legalizing Gambling

Japan is moving toward the legalization of land based gambling leaving potential for online gambling in the future.

A bill to legalize land casinos is in the works after over a decade of effort from lawmakers. If approved, Japan could become the second largest gambling market in the world and according to a local news publication such a bill could be passed as soon as the next few months.

“The hurdles to enter the business should be set high. It should not be easy for anyone to get a license and participate in the industry,” the policy plan states. “With proper regulation and enforcement of the law, there is absolutely no reason for casinos to become hotbeds of criminal activity.”

MGM Resorts International, Las Vegas Sands Corp, Melco Crown Entertainment and Wynn Resorts Ltd have expressed interest in opening casinos in Japan.

A bill is expected to be presented before the end of the year with approval expected in early 2014 followed by a two year window for the government to implement the political requirements.

WOOOO real gentlemen - nothing at least as usual - they cant say the contrary of their last email i think.How explain that one day before as they rules said i am  not eligible for a bonus and one day after i am eligible ?and the problem is that i won the first day so how be clear when the second day i became eligible for  a  bigger bonus and that i have te permission to cashout ..but.nothing i lost.   there  will be any explanation I think:the only available that works in any same kind of   situation is that rules  can be changed as and when and how the casino wants - rules - no rules what importance  it was  a  freebie why will they pay ?i am stupid this is  the explanation.
