Changing the rules of the game
Asia’s key gaming jurisdictions, namely Singapore and Macau, are undergoing a major regulatory overhaul. In the April 2022 edition of AGBriefings Jurisdiction Updates, the magazine’s focus is on the key changes, and what they will mean for the industry.
Macau legislators are poring over amendments to the gaming law which will set the course for the city’s casinos for years to come. It was the first major shakeup in regulation for two decades and is the precursor to the bidding process for the casino concessions.
Over in Singapore, a new law will create a new regulatory authority to oversee all aspects of gambling in the city state. The government argues that the changes were necessary due to rapid changes in technology, which have affected how people bet, as well as the increased blurring of lines between gambling and gaming.
