The First Casino - When And Where

It's only a matter of time before Thailand legalizes casinos. The money to be raked in is too tempting for the politicians to pass up.

Question is when and where will be the first one? My guess, Pattaya sometime in the next five years.

House paves way for first Thai casino

The House of Representatives on Thursday approved a full report of the proposal to set up a casino-entertainment zone in Thailand following a three-hour meeting to discuss the matter.

The report was prepared by a special committee set up in December 2021, following a 310 to nine House vote in favour of weighing up the economic value an entertainment complex, with a casino to attract foreign visitors, could have on the economy against potential issues that might arise.
...
He said the report merely explored the possibility as a source of income for the country, and if casinos were to be developed, the positive and negative impacts must be thoroughly assessed.

"A decision on the casino-entertainment complex project is likely to be made by the next government. It can't happen within two or three years and most importantly public hearings and even a referendum among locals must be organised," said Mr Pakornwut.
...
According to the report, Bangkok, together with the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) and areas within a 100-kilometre radius of Suvarnabhumi and U-Tapao airports, would be suitable hosts for a casino complex.

Public hearings....Yea right.....When the powers that be want something they just do it...In the west they at least throw public hearings a bone....

Just draw a big circle around Bangkok maybe even as far as Hua hin and the casino complex should be somewhere in there.....

They will go all out to make the first complexes very beautiful,so they will need plenty of land.....Later the quality of the complexes should drop a fair bit....

Or a Vietnam style regulation of casinos. Singapore has some rules for locals/foreigners

VIETNAM - The country legalized local games of chance in 2017. The country has eight casinos open for foreign passport holders, with investors seeking to open up the larger domestic customer base. As part of a three year experiment, locals are permitted to enter casinos if they can show monthly income exceeding 10 million dong (US$449) and are charged a 1 million dong entry tax. [2] The country announced plans in 2017 to legalize sports betting.[2]

Maybe the first "legal" one.

But FAR from being the first one to exist.

There are several casinos in existence where the police accept "tea money"i in return for turning a blind eye yo what is going on

There are 3 within a 50m radius of my house !!

Big one used to be behind the beer bars on Arunotai, now razed. And then there's the alley nicknamed Soi Casino off of Buakhao... wonder how the alley came by that name.

Yes mate.. but it is so fucking obvious where I live when a "house" suddenly has about 10 cars parked outside... During the World Cup there were loads of gambling schools going here....But they were just staying up to watch the footie officer !!!

It took a long time really. No doubt there was/is some monumental shifting going on regarding where (when and how) the direction of the dosh flow will be channeled. 

Probably some ticked off people out there, and also some who are drooling and planning how to dip into the new pie. 

Possibly some undercurrents could be read with the incident involving the "big raid" that occurred with the massage king dropping a dime and the following exposure of so many. Wouldn't be surprised one iota if there isn't some connection. 

 

Look at the shit that went on when prohibition was enacted. Or weed and gambling laws in the U.S.

I'd rather 1 lady drink, they are less rigged than any asian casinos.

Buy 2 Lottery tickets and you stand a one in a million chance of winning something....walk into an agogo and only buy one Lady drink and you will always walk away with nothing.

I have almost always gotten something in return with a single lady drink if i wanted, that either be a laugh, a few kisses, a fondling, a chat etc.

Be very careful with that arithmetic, chances of one in a million crop up nine times out of ten 😉

That, I would love to see!

Personally I couldn't just walk in to an agogo, only buy one LD, fondle a girl's titties then walk out without buying a drink.

The smile, chat and laugh I get for free from the Lottery sellers..

You must be number one handsome man !!

A stinky finger can last all day for the price of a lady drink.
