Thailand gets closer to casino legalisation with 2nd study ready for House approval

A committee from Thailand’s House of Representatives, responsible for evaluating the feasibility of legalizing casinos in the country, will present its findings to the parliament next week.

According to the Bangkok Post, the second study confirms that the legalization of gaming is a possibility. Thai Deputy Finance Minister Julapun Amornvivat, who leads the special House committee, announced that the committee’s study had concluded, providing comprehensive information on the subject.

He stated that if the House adopts the study, it would then be sent to the cabinet for approval and implementation.

Sorawong Thienthong, vice chairman of the House committee, indicated that the gaming industry could “generate huge revenue for the country,” while the casino will be only a small part of the complexes.

In a previous interview with AGB, the gaming expert Fredric Gushin said that Thailand could be a new gold rush for gaming companies, in particular top-tier gaming companies, as there are very limited opportunities around the world.

Currently, Genting Singapore is likely to become the first entity to formally announce its interest in developing an integrated resort (IR) in Thailand.
