Japan To Embrace Online Betting Industry



A recent campaign has been launched in Japan to legalise both online and land based casinos, and has been backed by the country’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party.


An arm of the committee on tourism has suggested that the legalisation of online gambling in Japan would provide an economic boost for the country, in a move that could lead the way for a change of policy towards online casinos not only in Japan, but also throughout other parts of Asia.


The committee is expected to open discussions with government officials with the prospect of online gambling operators being invited for future talks.


However the news has been tempered by social action groups in Japan, who have expressed concern about the influence of increased online casino gaming on the country’s youth, prompting protests from charities and gambling awareness groups.


In response, the government has taken measures to reassure protestors that their concerns will be carefully considered.
