Japan to Limit Number of Allowed Visits in upcoming Casino Resorts

Tags: Japan, pachinko
Posted on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 by "T".
Late last year, casino gambling in Japan was finally legalized, after many years of discussions on whether it would be best move for the country's betterment. After the approval of the Integrated Resorts Promotion Bill, the Japanese government now must create and pass another type of legislative piece, one which would function to regulate the gambling industry.

Yes I too think that pochui is right this is not good to have limits on number of visits in casino, i go with friends to enjoy some time every weekend and i can only think how sad it would be if we can't go because some politicians decide that this is how things are

I wonder what the "acceptable" limits will be, on weekly and monthly basis.
It will put a break for sure to addicts Smile
And if you want to exceed that limit, you must belong to that category Smile

I bet casinos wont like this new law.

I suppose that this is a pretty good idea to keep a check on how many visits per gambler. It is a pretty good way to stop people spending every day in the casinos' and might help prevent, at least, a few people going overboard with their gambling

It seems, that they allowed that you loose all your money in the Casino, but please not every day Big Smile And the government are happy about the taxes, but they will be political correct and allowing only restricted Casino visits...

I heard that residents in Japan are going to have to pay an entrance fee ($100 or so) per visit, which is a huge disincentive for most gamblers. On top of that, the government will restrict the number of times not only Japanese nationals but temporary visitors of the country can play at casinos? Really...

I am very happy after many reports of the closure of games in the territory of different countries from some country there was an opposite point of view ... maybe this will affect a little bit other countries and there will also make some freedom for games

I can see limiting the number of visits to citizens and locals, but
for the tourists also? That will limit all the ones, going in a casino vacation Smile
and there are quite many of them.
They are thinking for the good of all and not only their own Smile

That's a very good point, Mober.
Here is another article pertaining to the government's plan: Govt to limit maximum number of casino visits
It is not clearly stated in the article whether foreign tourists will be totally exempt from the restriction on the number of trips to casino(s)...

Seriously? When did "unlimited access to casino gambling" become part of basic human rights? Japan is a democracy, and if it wants to put limits on how much people use casinos, then fine. Good on them, it'll be an interesting experiment which we might be able to learn something from as well. Change comes slowly to that country and it's so easy to be ethnocentric about issues like this.

While it is understandable that legislators are considering limits on permanent residents' ability to patronize local casinos, imposing restrictions on temporary visitors from abroad would be overly strict and unpractical.

patronize or not patronize but me ponders this is quite a silly thing to even think of, putting on limits on visits... wtf? what next- limits on how many times per year one can visit public toilets? i do hope that people of japan somehow will be able to live their lives with such laws in effect.

It all depends on the number of visitors to foreigners in the casino of Japan .... if a large number of people will come to Japan solely for the purpose of playing then the casino can be crowded .... time will show all the nuances of this law

I thought this was a weird restriction found exclusively in Japan, but it turned out I was mistaken. In fact, a few casinos in South Korea limit the number of times a gamer can enter. The Philippines has followed suit. And in Singapore, casino patrons can be imposed on the number of times they can enter the casino each month. It seems that prospective integrated resorts or casinos in Japan will be modeled on those in Singapore, a middle ground between Asian nations like Cambodia that bar locals from their casinos and the open-door policy of Macau and a few other governments.

here such a thing wouldnt work due to the population, but they HAVE to 'give' back or be seen as to be a 'good' and not a bad thing so some have free events like bingo etc for free money although that goes straight into the slot machine - but its a work around the law maybe in this case it could be something similar so that the casino doesnt look as though it just 'take take take' or that its doing something to help stop 'problem gambling'

Yes i said it and still think that the restrictions of number of visits per year one customer can do in a casino is very bad thing, it is disrespectful from human rights, I think every people is free to do what he wants when he wants to lose his money or maybe even win some

It is always good to know that some actually are thinking about the good of their citizens
and there are not other motives on their decisions and actions, after some point.

Here when they started the bans on most of the online sites, they said exactly the same thing, to protect us.
Now they are one step, before the launch of slots in every physical location, that offers
betting.
What a protection, huh?

Now when i had a second or third thought about this strange limitation of visits law i kinda think that it actually doesnt help with the fact that people still want to gamble even though they are not allowed to do so legally therefore they can turn to illegal gambling
