"Gambling in Thailand" Thailand Warnings Or Dangers Tip by khunwilko

Thailand Warnings and Dangers: 218 reviews and 111 photos

Any form of gambling is illegal in Thailand.....apart from the unimpressive lottery

It is one of those curious things, given Thailand's relaxed approach to many vices that both police and the law come down very hard on gamblers - if and when they can be bothered.

There were several campaigns during the world cup to eliminate gambling on the football. These tend to be spasmodic and sporadic though.

I personally wouldn't want to run the risk of being busted - however unlikely.

BTW - Most internet gambling sites are blocked by the Thai govt - along with about 40 to 150 thousand other sites!!!
