No visitor to Brunei should expect to find a land-based casino here. There have been some illegal offerings of some basic casino game such as card games. When caught doing this, there are harsh penalties for both those offering the games and those participating in them, including foreigners.
The Brunei government forbids all forms of gambling, and this is enforced through the Common Gaming House Act. Although the act covers land-based gambling, it is assumed that it also refers to online betting which would include online casinos. The government is even contemplating enforcing Sharia law, which would make it more dangerous to gamble.
Licensed casinos in Brunei
Many Brunei residents still want to be able to enjoy what casinos have to offer, and because of the laws, are forced to look online for this form of entertainment. Many licensed casinos will not accept players where gambling is illegal. This leaves room for unlicensed casinos to operate.
The unlicensed casinos have no rules or regulations to govern them. Players are at the mercy of these unlicensed casino operators, who can set the wagering limits at any level they want. They can offer crooked games, and they could refuse to make the payouts when players win. The players have nobody to report this too.
Real money casinos in Brunei
There is nothing wrong with enjoying exciting casino gameplay with real money, provided that the player has extra money to use. Players who put aside a set amount to play with, and do not go beyond this budget, derive a great deal of guilt-free casino enjoyment.
Players at online casinos should also allow a specific amount of time to enjoy the games. They are so exciting, it is easy to spend hours enjoying them and forgetting about other duties. Those who enjoy alcohol should never play online casino games when they have had too much to drink, as this clouds judgement.
