Online poker Sites

Postby khozh » Sat Dec 04, 2010 4:47 pm

Sorry guys the question I'm going to ask is probably gonna sound stupid. But are online poker sites such as full tilt and pokerstars legal in Singapore?

Just because a lot of people jaywalk and never get caught / fined doesn't mean it is legal , but people still do it cos its seldom enforced :mrgreen:

Pokerstars is hosted outside Singapore
Genting is hosted outside Singapore
Las Vegas is hosted outside Singapore
Macau is hosted outside Singapore

On other note Party Poker has an office IN Singapore (thus all Singaporeans banned)

Just how safe is on line betting. I have been betting on horses with citi.bet for the past 1 year and was losing all this while until last weekend where i make 20k. However, my joy was shattered as the agent would not answer my call. Worst still now i cannot even access to my account. Anyone out know where i can lodge a complaint and to whom?

So you're trying to say its legal? Then how come we have to use moneybookers to deposit money instead of direct deposits using Visa or Mastercard? Moreover we are in Singapore so the law assumes that we have to play by Singapore rules. And its like they're hosted outside so we're expected to travel out of the country to gamble isnt it?

if its against the law wouldnt singaporeans been banned by now?washington d.c,france and italy has already banned their citizens from playing on pokerstars and full tilt,they are only allowed to play on pokerstars.fr or their respective countrys' sites.

Downloading music online is illegal as well. How many people actually never do it?
