Indonesia is a red-level online gambling jurisdiction where it's illegal to take part in any type of gambling.
Indonesia is an archipelago off of the coast of southern Asia. It consists of more than 17,000 islands and 37 provinces. Parts of it are close to the northern shores of Australia, and others are close to the southern shores of Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Because Indonesia is broken up into so many different islands (over 17,000 total), and because there are 37 provinces there, enforcement of any type of Internet-based law is difficult at best. Online gambling is illegal in Indonesia thanks to Islamic law, but that's with the caveat that there is no real enforcement of any kind. Lots of people play from Indonesia each year without any real problem.
There have been no publicized cases of anyone getting into trouble for gambling on the Internet, and there isn't much of a discussion about it in public circles or the media either. Along these lines, it seems to be something that the government is not interested in actively policing to any serious extent.
Despite their lax attitude towards enforcing these laws on the players, there have been some minimal amount of effort to block foreign sites on an ISP level. These attempts haven't really went so well, and they've done virtually nothing to stop people from gambling. What these attempts do show, however, is that Indonesia's government is in no way, shape or form interested in starting a licensing process for online gambling at this point in time. Along these lines, we don't recommend that players expect any type of licensing for any type of gambling there for a very long time.
Since anyone who gambles online is technically breaking the law in Indonesia, there are no protections of any kind for the players. While we can't recommend breaking the law in this country, players who are determined to play in spite of the legal status here should make sure they do so with sites that have a good history of taking care of their players and of being reliable with cash outs for several years. This will minimize any issues of not being able to receive your withdrawals if you run up a sizable win.
