Poker in Thailand

thai-lan13522860181[1]

Over the past few years, Thailand has become the top spot in Asia for professional online poker players to spend their time in, especially during the European/US winter. The infrastructure is one the best in South East Asia; the food is great; and there are tons of places to enjoy life – like at the beach playing poker online. The quality of the internet has improved a lot and is now close to western standards.

Although gambling is illegal in Thailand, there hasn’t been a case yet where a poker player has had a problem playing online. However, making deposits with a Thai-IP address is restricted. The bigger problem is that casinos are illegal in the country. Besides a couple of – obviously illegal – poker home games in Bangkok, Koh Samui, Phuket, and Pattaya, there are only a couple of casinos at the borders of Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar with Thailand, where gambling is allowed. In Poipet (Cambodia) poker is offered at Holiday Palace.
