The operator Suncity Group said that it will apply Macau laws to all its operations to prevent a new wave of accusations.
Macau.- The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) issued last week a warning on Macau operators about online gambling. Suncity Group has now pledged to apply Macau laws to all its overseas operations in order to prevent accusations.
The accusations from the DICJ were in reference to the company operating offshore online casinos targeting mainland gamblers. Suncity denied the allegations, saying it doesn’t operate any online gambling activities, but the DICJ decided to warn them. Director Paulo Martins Chan reminded that the government doesn’t allow any promotion of online gambling and placing bets via telephone.
Suncity Chief Executive Officer Alvin Chau said that the Macau regulations will continue to serve as the standard for future operations, both in the SAR and abroad, Macau Daily Times reports.
Offshore online casinos and proxy betting services are banned in Macau but not in overseas jurisdictions. Suncity, however, said that if Macau doesn’t allow products or services, then the company would not adopt them even if other countries and regions do.
