Online Casinos

There are many forms of gambling in Japan, such as pachinko, pachislot, horse racing, and lottery.

Online casinos allow you to enjoy entertainment in the so-called casino genre, such as slots, baccarat, poker and blackjack.

Recently, technological development has progressed, and the number of online slots has become countless, such as being able to interact with live dealers.

Of course, the animation and production quality is also high, making it a very convenient online game that you can enjoy using your smartphone while at home or on the bus or train while commuting.

On the other hand, it is true that the legality of playing in Japan is being questioned.

It can be said that it is almost illegal for Japanese people to play from Japan at online casinos operated in Japan.

However, most of the servers that operate online casinos are located overseas.

In that case, it is the same as playing a casino while traveling abroad.

As a result, Japanese law does not apply, and the current reality is that it cannot be said to be legally illegal. ( Article 2 of the Penal Code, Article 3 of the Penal Code )

However, as with any gambling, responsability is fundamental.

Enjoy the casino to the fullest while managing your risk.
