Japan to Receive Its Own Casino Regulator in the Early 2020

25 Oct 2019

The lawmakers of Japan have been working tirelessly in order to develop its own name in the online gambling industry, and particularly having its own casino industry to work with and compete with other countries across the world. Obviously, the necessary steps are being taken to investigate and research to see if the casino industry will be safe for its people – both from a health standpoint and for the financial markets. Japan is continuing its studies into casinos to this day in order to have all the information necessary.

Now, there has been reports that Japan has finally made efforts to release a new casino regulator within the year of 2020. This will give Japan the opportunity they need to break through into the market. However, until this new regulation has been authorized, there will still be no accessible gambling venues allowed to set foot into the country.

Months of talks and discussions have been made in order to weigh both the cons and pros of this new development. If the casino regulator is set, there will be several steps that must be taken after the annunciation. First, there must be supervision for the new casino operators that will now be given the go-ahead to work. Secondly, work must be done to help minimize the risk of potential gambling-related disorders. There are many potential harms that can come from legal gambling, and so these must be taken into consideration before allowing the citizens to become users.

Once regulations gain final approval in March, both the licensing companies and the new operators will finally gain full access and be able to open their doors to all who wish to take part in the games. Over 100 candidates will be selected for the new gambling body which will organize everything related to this field. This is to ensure complete efficiency in the gambling world being finally open to Japan.
