Gaming Standards Association – Japan

In December 2016, Japanese policymakers legalized casino gambling. The passage of the law-making that made casinos legal marked the beginning of a long regulation and society process. This process will be paving the way for the growth of the three joint resorts and casino facilities. The next stage in the process requires a range of preferred sites for the three resorts and the corporations that will build and operate them. The primary properties are expected to open doors in the early-to-mid 2020s.

Assuring the Truthfulness of Casino Management

Peter DeRaedt, said that they look forward to giving support to local authorities and government representatives with unbiased data.  The association brought together the business and has also facilitated deliberations. Which led to the growth of a number of key values for the fruitful provision of an imperative level of transparency to regulators, governments, operators, and the manufacturers.

The government of Japan is to announce their favored locations for its first three combined casino resorts. Also, launch the bidding process for the three casino licenses as part of the casino ratification process.
