China Tackles Illegal Gaming Across Borders

China Tackles Illegal Gaming Across Borders

2022 was a busy year for China. The country was struggling with new coronavirus cases as well as multiple riots because of government measures. The country reelected its president for another term and this brought new government issues that calmed the situation.

Illegal gaming cross-border was also tackled by the government and it cracked 37,000 cases. The Ministry of Public Security and other governmental departments worked for hand in hand to tackle the various illegal gaming cases. Both online and offline casino platforms were targeted and shut down. But this is just the beginning as the government is looking to win this battle.

Over 37,000 Cases Cracked by the Chinese Government

All casinos operating in and around China need licenses to do so. The operators need to apply for such a license and if they’re granted one, then they’ll be able to operate in a certain region. If they are denied a license they’ll need to try again after a period of time.

The ones that follow the procedure will have no qualms about not getting a license, but the others will do anything to start operating. That’s why there are lots of illegal casinos across the world. The land-based ones are usually dens where people looking to play a casino game can visit. The online ones are sites without a license making them unsafe for any casino fan.

China decided to clean house on illegal gaming activities which is why various departments linked with the Ministry of Public Safety have been actively cracking down on such cases. So far, 37,000 cases of illegal gaming have been cleared. These cases include 2,600 online gaming platforms, secret banks, and more than 1,100 land-based casinos. These departments are showing no signs of stopping which is why they will continue their work.

Operators and anyone involved in these cases will get fines and sentences according to their involvement. The government will continue to crack down on illegal operator’s cross-borders. Casinos need a license to operate and they also need to follow certain regulations to keep their licenses.

Conclusion

China and its governmental departments have managed to crack down on 37,000 cases of illegal gaming. It has been doing so since 2022 and there are no signs of it stopping to rest. Cross-border illegal gaming is the current target of the government which is why they’re going to tackle it as best they can.
