Gambling – It is for your own good



‘Singaporeans and permanent residents who visit casinos more than five times a month may need to show proof they are not in financial distress or face restrictions, acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Chan Chun Sing told the Straits Times newspaper.’

Checking their finances and bank accounts is a good thing as it will force them to reveal all their monies kept in Sinkie banks and overseas, or with their mistresses, to show that they are financially sound. Make sure they attend an interview and tell the truth. It will definitely help the Tax dept to collect some taxes as well. And those who are trying to catch money laundering can also tap into this revelation or confession.

I think this is a wise and good thing to do. But to make it more effective, Sinkies who frequent the casinos more than 5 times a month should also produce a certificate from the psychiatrists that they are mentally sound and able to control their gambling habits. I am sure the shrinks will love to share their problems.

With the change in mandatory penalties to protect the criminals, and now to protect gamblers, the govt is showing how caring it is in taking care of its people. We protect orang utans in our zoo, we protect exotic plants in our latest high tech sci fi botanic gardens, next on the list will be wild boars.

It is for the good of the citizens and the animals that these measures should be taken before these silly Sinkies and animals/plants destroy themselves. Sinkies should call the govt papa.

The two casinos should form membership club for Spore citizens,only members are allowed to enter,free for foreigners.

Goog idea. Membership fee starts at $30k. This will rule out those Sinkies who cannot afford to gamble.

Should just shout caveat emptor.

Wah. What a nanny state government. It is clear: no one is capable of looking after themselves. The government ultimately is going to decide what is good or bad for you.

Got freedom?

PAP became government in 1959,about 53 years ago,it is obviously a world record.
These "uniquely Singapore" citizens do deserve some special treatment from the government.

Hi jjgg, I know, it is difficult to put Humpty Dumpty together again.

In the first place why allowed snake oil to be sold and then blame the buyer and seller?

Hmmm, there will come a day when Singaporeans may need to bid for certificate of entitlements (COEs) in order to have entitlement to enter the casinos.

Not too far fetched, I can tell you. This is just the initial sounding stage for more money making ideas in the pipeline. The reasons manufacture will come thick and fast.

And the answer is, it is for our own good, as always.

Welcome to the gambling hub.

The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.sbobet
