Will Thailand be opening a legal casino any time soon?

Will Thailand be opening a legal casino any time soon?Legacy

In Thailand gambling is not yet legal. Even though it would bring in a great gain for the economy. However, there have been some movements at the end of 2021. And they might bring new perspectives into account. Because a part of the population supports a potential casino opening.

In Thailand, there has always been a rich tradition of horse race betting. And with horse tracks spread across the country, the betting culture is still alive, and the tribunes are often filled with a betting audience. There is a rich culture for betting and lottery. However, other types of gambling have long been forbidden. However, Thailand might benefit from legalizing casinos as it could generate quite a financial gain for the country. If you want to explore the world that could potentially be, you can visit Thai Casino here.

Supports and oppositions

In December 2021 a survey showed that a percentage of 21,25 per cent was supportive in terms of legalizing gambling. Most pointed to the fact that it could help generate revenue for the country and some highlighted that it would keep Thais from travelling abroad to engage in gambling. And maybe all these movements will make Thailand consider legalizing casinos. An economist even advocates for legalizing gambling and opening casinos and points to the implementation of restrictions such as age limits and income limits. This would accommodate the part of the population, that is sceptical. 

Even though a part of the population supports the idea, there is still a great deal of opposition. And it is the populations’ opposition that is slowing down the process. The estimated financial revenue for the state is around 200 billion each year, which will benefit many. 

Already a gambling nation

A survey showed that even though the country has tight restrictions, a lot of Thais are engaged in gambling. And this entails other types of gambling than the popular and legal Thai lottery. The survey carried out by the Center for Gambling Studies at Chulalongkorn University showed that over half of the population was engaged in some type of gambling. 57 per cent was the exact number. When a significant number is gambling, it is a bit alarming as some of this activity must be illegal. There is a lot of sense in legalizing gambling and making it controlled by the government with this in mind. If it is illegal, people will continue to seek out these options. Legalizing is a way of getting control of a certain market. 

The push of tourism

One of the things pushing this decision is the great amount of tourism that Thailand benefits from every year. A lot of travellers appreciate the possibility to gamble on their holiday. This could attract a lot of newcomers as some might choose countries with fewer regulations on the matter. And the government might feel a certain pressure to offer a gambling option to the many tourists travelling to the country each year. Tourism is a great income source for the country, and the government might be willing to go a long way to please the tourists.

Domestic airlines are done with social distancing requirements as Thailand’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAAT) has announced it has eased restrictions.

However, airlines must replace their high-efficiency particulate air filters on a regular basis along with improving overall air ventilation inside cabins when flying.

Passengers are also responsible for wearing face masks and are to be warned that if they ignore the regulation, they could face legal action.

Airlines, however, aren’t the only ones experiencing a relaxation of social distancing measures as those travelling on the MRT in Bangkok will also be allowed to sit together starting July 1.

In an effort to help travellers on the MRT stay healthy, one million face masks are being distributed to them between now and August.

Quick! Hurry! A partial solar eclipse is now visible in Koh Samui, Thailand today from 1-4pm.

Experts say Samui will have about a 16 percent view of the eclipse while other locations in Thailand would have more.

The eclipse started today at 1:10 pm with maximum coverage reaching 40% at 2:48pm. The eclipse will end at 4:10pm.

Sunday’s event is known as an annular solar eclipse, in which the moon does not completely cover the sun as it passes between the sun and Earth. Instead, a ring of sunlight will still shine around the outer edge, hence the “ring of fire” name.

Sunday’s eclipse coincides with the northern hemisphere’s longest day of the year. The summer solstice, when Earth’s north pole is tilted most directly toward the sun.

Sky-Gazers are reminded that even if the day has turned cloudy, viewing a solar eclipse with the naked eye is dangerous. Sunglasses, which do not filter out ultraviolet rays, don’t offer any protection.

Sky-Gazers can see “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse on Sunday June 21, 2020

Baby Elephants Electrocuted To Death By Orchard Fence

Two baby elephants have been reportedly electrocuted to death in Thailand after a fruit orchard owner built an electric fence to keep the elephants out.

Parks and Wildlife officials believed they may have become separated from their herd in the eastern province of Chanthaburi and ventured into the orchard where one stepped on the fence and the other’s trunk touched it. Veterinarians say the elephants were around two years old.

The Department of National Parks and Wildlife estimates there are roughly 3,340 wild elephants live in 69 wildlife sanctuaries and national parks across the country-with the number of wild elephants rising.

However along with a rise in its population, more conflicts have been developing between elephants and farmers. Even more now as the elephants, searching for food, sometimes eat their crops.

However, loss of habitat and poaching helped lead to a steep decline in the elephant population; where it once totalled 100,000 wild elephants.

Some poaching is still taking place despite harsh penalties and valiant efforts by forest rangers to stop it. Several forest rangers have been killed or wounded in recent years battling poachers.

There are about 3,500 domesticated elephants at parks and sanctuaries in Thailand.

The Department of National Parks said it would try to reduce those conflicts by providing additional food sources into the elephant habitat. Addiontally, they plan to compensate those farmers whose crops have been damaged by hungry elephants.

Police are reportedly questioning the orchard’s owner over the elephants’ deaths.

Police have busted a Russian man on Koh Samui for allegedly using fake credit cards for purchases.

Vadim Valeev, aged 35, was found to be in possession of 8 fake credit cards and a credit card skimming device after a bank employee alerted police to multiple instances of credit card usage irregularities at a pharmacy on the island.

On Friday evening, the suspect was spotted trying to leave for Phuket at Don Sak pier where police then searched his car, finding the illegal products.

As borders remain closed to Thailand, its immigration bureau is beefing up efforts to keep illegal immigrants at bay.

Pol Lt Gen Sompong Chingduang, chief of The Immigration Bureau (IB), says he is concerned about the border crossings due to the possible spread of Covid-19.

Most immigrants are trying to enter through natural channels such as the Mekong River and are coming from Cambodia and Laos-with some also bringing drugs with them.

He said immigration police in Nong Khai have seized more than 5 million speed pills and a large amount of dried cannabis over the past few months.

Foreigners still aren’t allowed to enter the Kingdom, he said. Some migrants crossing the border illegally may bring viral infections with them which will not be caught by screening authorities, observers say.

Ubon Ratchathani, Bung Kan and Nong Khai have borders with Laos while Ubon Ratchathani and Si Sa Ket have borders with Cambodia.

A poll has indicated that a majority of people in Thailand think it is now time for a new leader of the Palang Pracharath Party (PPRP).

Gen Prawit Wongsuwon, the party’s chief strategist, is reportedly their choice for the post, as many said in an opnion survey by Suan Dusit Rajabhat University, that they feel he is the most fit.

The online poll, conducted recently, featured 1,108 peoples’ opinions throughout the country. The poll sought to gauge opinions on the ongoing developments in the PPRP, the main party in the multi-party coalition.

A large majority, 72.20%, said it was now time for PPRP to make changes as the present leadership had proved inefficient and more qualified people should be placed in the executive committee.

Asked who they thought was suitable to be the party leader, most of the respondents — 54.26% — pointed to Gen Prawit.

But only less than half of respondents said a new appointment would make any difference in Thai politics.
