After all, casinos is not "gambling".  They love to call it "Gaming" as california calls it as do other casinos.  It is just for fun,  It just happens to cost a lot in the end

Why go to a stinking, cigarette smoke-filled environment when all casino games and (sports books) are available to be played online in the comfort of your own home? 
 

Just need a bank account in your home country and a VPN.
 

Too easy.

In a country with major systemic corruption, I fear this is going to be a nasty addition.  

Crime gangs and criminal individuals will love it to launder criminal proceeds, like all casinos.  The main reason is to legitimize ill-gotten gains to escape authorities.

 

Blind eyes will be turned to allow piles of crooked cash to poor into these places.  Just like other casinos - flying in VIPS with private planes full of cash to pump through the casino tables.  

 

Average Thai punters will lose their dough.  Gambling addictions will increase.  Expats and average tourists may go in for a punt, but really won't be the main draw cards for cash flows.  

 

Illegally run casinos at least mean it's not mainstream and keeps it being commercialized into the multi billion dollar industries.

 

Loan sharks, kidnappings, extortion, gang murders.  Here we go.  

The bank always wins.

Crime gangs will use them to launder money? You are talking about 4-5 casinos owned by the most well connected families with Government oversight. You really think they will launder money or just reap massive profits. Think about it!

“We’re focused on attracting foreigners to step up tourism and draw more money out of their pockets,” said Pichet Chuamuangphan, a lawmaker from the Pheu Thai Party, who is a vice chairman of the panel. “This will also stem the outflow of money from Thai gamblers and help the government collect hefty taxes for our economic security.”

Only after ones money ,nothing else matters.

Casinos are legalized theft centers.....

 

About 95% of people lose money there....

 

And with the remaining 5% winners almost all go back and lose their winnings....

 

Only a very few walk with winnings and don't go back.....

The "MONEY LENDERS" would love this!!!!!

Most money lenders will run away from people wanting money to gamble.  The ROI is <deleted> and there is no hope of getting as anything back.  Pawnshop could do a good business but the 500k in bank will cause issues.

 

Question does nana plaza qualify as an entertainment area
