The Macau entity DICJ said that it will make a special effort against illegal online gambling.
Macau.- A local organisation has urged the government that advertising of online casinos should be regulated. It sent letters to several parties involving the gambling industry and said it supports the regulation of illegal online gambling. The government said that the administration will make special efforts against those crimes.
The letter was addressed to the Secretary for Economy and Finance Lionel Leong, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), and the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM), among others.
The DICJ expressed its concerns in regards to illegal online gambling, and said that they have been working to fight this with a rigorous attitude, Macau Daily Times reported. DICJ has exchanged information and intelligence with a number of law enforcement entities and other bureaus, and pledged to continue its work against illegal gambling activities in the city.
The association that wrote the letter stated that online casino operators might take advantage of Macau’s current position as an exhibition hub because they can subtly promote illegal online gambling.
