Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin has thrown his support behind legalising casinos, arguing that it would allow for better control of gambling and proper tax collection.


So the lottery tax collection is not proper?

Hopefully put a few casinos at the new bridge in Being Kan.


Sakon Nakhon and Bueng Kan would benefit from any tourism it would bring.

Within 18 months of any opening, there will be so many Thais bankrupt and/or in-debt to family or loan sharks that the outcry to close them will be deafening. Alcohol, ganja, gambling and prostitution... queue the quality tourist 🤣

yeah,  isn't that great ... :thumbsup:

Don't get me wrong but there are MUCH more professional players in the legal casino business. Macau springs to mind on a pole position. King Romans in the special economic zone of Laos' province of Bokeo (Tonpheung) is to be mentioned as well as Poipet opposite Aranyaprathet or Savan in Savannakhet opposite Mukdahan. 

Seeing what kind of committees, working groups, departments and ministries are trying to the a slice of the cake in Thailand - the mind boggles. In addition there is no tourism to be expected from this, it will merely permit ill-gotten funds getting money-laundered through ..... casino winnings - your call 😉

“The casinos will occupy no more than 5% of the space within these complexes, which will also feature hotels and various entertainment facilities,”

At the demise of local businesses?

Will these huge entertainment facilities take custom away from small local run bars, restaurants hotels etc etc?

Just put a 7-11 at every entrance and they'll be fine,   imagine the drunken thai losers that will crowd the steps crying in their lao khao every night,  loan sharks hovering around, even the food vendors will do ok.
