Tags: Ed Bowers, Japan, Liberal Democratic Party
Posted on Friday, February 23, 2018 by "T".
The government of Japan has proposed to set a casino entry levy of JPY2,000 (approx.

A cover charge of JPY2,000 is a bit steep for recreational gamblers, but it probably won't discourage hard-core gamblers from frequenting casinos.
There are no legal casinos in Japan as of February 2018. There are many underground casinos operated by shady people. The first ever legalized casino will open its door to the public probably in late 2021 or 2022.

This fee seems too high. No matter what their plans are it seems like an excuse.
We have heard such excuses here also, and we have seen the results.
The purpose was just some more income, along with favoring some businesses to take
a bigger portion of the pie.

apparently the government appreciated the well-being of its citizens quite high ... and of course gamblers will pay this money to enter the casino .... 19 dollars of course this is pretty much for admission .... but apparently the government knows what it does .... probably ... maybe

of fcuk, what a nice idea- you have to pay a fee for your chance to enter the casino. to put it in other words- you have to pay to be given a privilege to lose... awesome, pay to enter the casino... just leave some money in your pocket to lose on the night.. nice idea... what next pay to enter the mall?

With that fee they are forcing everyone there to start from that expense,
if they want to go an gamble.
And i bet there are several players, that they go and spend that amount, even less
as maximum. For a drink perhaps and some fun.
They are gonna lose them.

I think a redicula measure because many go to the casino to have fun and not to ganahr money and with this these people will not go making drop the revenue of the casinos and as everywhere the taxes are explorativos well that and in japan se It's in Brazil, and mine is money to be stolen.

I particularly find it very bad when a government or parents take a downgrade to sue a casino or trubutar in an abusive way because the casino itself after much benefits to the ecomonia and with these attitudes can be scared such invesstimentos
