Legalize gambling and there will be a Chinese casino on every corner...more than 7/11s.

That is the true goal of this leader making it legal doing so would give the government a monopoly since they aren't getting enough out of the current system where each province and local BIB run operation are getting majority of the benefit. Thus the reason during the pandemic to raid and close down the backroom operations.

Having the Chinese come in build and operate give them one big source of income.

Gambling is an addiction affecting most parts of the human body, there will always be gambles and gambling, it is embedded in the the human psyche, so we're likely to read many more stories such as this one...

Unfortunately gambling and alcohol feed Thais addiction to the now with no thought to tommorow. Religion and Politics feed upon this as expressed through the education conscription and legal systems. Mai pen rai is a disease not a philosophy

Yes indeed, but no casinos on every street corner, however Pattaya and other seaside resorts could be transformed into Special Chinese Economic (gambling) Zones like Sihanoukville and Poipet in Cambodia and the Golden Triangle complex in Laos.

Why limit gambling to just Chinese patrons? Many Western and Middle Eastern tourists and residents also enjoy a flutter.

Thank you for your comment and with respect, I did not refer to "Chinese only" patrons. The Special Economic Gambling/Tourism Zones with their casinos that surround Thailand in Burma, Laos and Cambodia are owned and operated by the Chinese catering for all International punters, including many Thais. I used to enjoy a small flutter when on shopping trips from Mae Sai (Thailand) across the border to Tachilek (Burma).

Yes, so not only is Thailand losing tourist gambling revenue, but it's also seeing money leave Thailand's economy with Thai's having to leave the country to gamble.

Yes indeed and pre-covid-19, many thousands of Thais did so as I witnessed at Tachilek in Burma and Poipet in Cambodia. They only have to show ID cards.

We saw what returning Thai gamblers and Thai hookers did with spreading covid.  There's no control on a border that basically has no control.

And look at how Sihanoukville has been totally destroyed by that.

 

Poipet has always been a dump.

Very true.... first time there I was horrified by the beggars.

It was also known as the most corrupt of border crossings.
