And provide their financial status before entering  Lol so they have to supply there up to date ( the same day as they enter the casino) print out from there bank books 🙂  Just like we have to do for our renewal of our Retirement visa 🙂  That would be funny

Total deal breaker.

If they're serious they need to nix that ridiculousness.

This government like many don't really care the headlines of this story should provide plenty of evidences!   " REVENUE 30% "  end of story!  🤣🤑  money talks and is above all things versus people concerns.  Oh don't forget the common line used by leaders JOBS! 

Legalizing weed should give everyone a clue as to how much money can be at state for the government leaders just look at how much COW <deleted> has been sold since?

Could do what they do in Singapore & charge all locals/PRs s$100 (approx. 2,500 THB) to go into the Casino.

They’ve looked at Singapore, previously vehemently morally opposed to gambling, now raking it in from their casinos.

 

I wonder how long it will be before UK style betting shops or Aussie pokies will dot every street corner in the Land of Smiles and Debt.

Was living in Singapore when the Casinos opened & you couldn't get into a taxi without the uncle (driver) telling you about their latest visit... These guys had to pay s$100 to enter but they just viewed this as a part of their gambling stake.

Will foreigners gambling be subject to duel pricing? Ten times worse winning odds? 

A question for American BMs... 

If I (a Brit) were to win a big Jackpot whilst on holiday in Las Vegas would I be subject to more, less or the same Tax as an American (or an LV resident) on it?

 

Genuine question as America is the only country I know of that taxes gambling/lottery wins.

Do these people even care that there is already a gambling problem here in Thailand, and folks go into debt and some lose houses, cars and so on.  Of course it is no different in other countries that have casinos, but the problems they have now and without the casinos will triple or quadruple.  Add in the prostitution, mafia types, and then the goons.  Keep the country devoid of Casino's, a better bet would be to allow foreigners to own land, capped at a small percentage for each area.

Your are right on, many times when I went to the Casino in Perth[ owned by the government] I saw many Asian's there 70 to 80% and betting like there was no tomorrow and they don't stop even if they hit the jackpot
