Thailand raises the issue of legalizing gambling again

Gambling News and Lucky Stories

Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-Ocha raised the issue of legalizing the gambling industry. He believes that gambling can become one of the most promising business areas in the country. The adoption of the relevant law will bring multimillion-dollar revenues to the country’s budget and will solve the problem of the shadow gambling business. But, the key question, in his opinion, is whether the majority of Thais will consider legalized gambling acceptable from a moral and ethical point of view. The world giants of the gambling industry have been eyeing the possible market of Thailand for a long time. About 40 million tourists come to the country every year, which makes it one of the most visited in the world, and the state’s economy ranks eighth in Asia. Therefore, the current authorities are striving to form their own legal gambling services market in Thailand. Talk about the possible legalization of gambling in Thailand has been going on for several decades. This topic was first brought up for discussion under former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. However, this proposal was met with skepticism. Industry insiders are sure that this time too, it is unlikely that anything will change. Earlier, a number of experts said that the death of the king will change the political climate in Thailand and will have an impact on the gambling business.
