Eight Games Submitted For Assessment Including Five Online Card Games

The Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications has been asked by the Ho Chi Minh City department of Information and Communications, has asked its controlling structure, to consider eight online games which have been causing excessive interest among students and citizens alike, in Internet cafes and other outlets.

Concerns have been expressed regarding the games in question that provide gambling or violence and may be said to overly consume the time and interests of the young.

According to Vietnamnet Bridge, consequently the department has requested that the Ministry review the contents of five online card playing games, which include Baccarat, Seven Poker, Blackjack, Gostop, and Badugi, that are being distributed by the Pacific Company, as well as three games which have violent elements, those being Special Force by FPT Online, Sudden Attack distributed by Vinagame, and Cross Fire by VTC Intercom.

Cross Fire, Sudden Attack, and Special Force, of the above games, have especially lured many of the youth into game shops and Internet cafes, where quote often tens of thousands of people are playing Sudden Attack around the city in addition to approximately 10,000 playing Special Force.

All online gaming accounts in Vietnam are controlled by the Ministry of Information and Communications which only permits users to play on an account for periods of five hour each day, following which user accounts are automatically logged off. In addition to this, for users to get the full value of any bonus points they must play for three hours or less – between 3-5 hours of play, and only 50 percent of obtainable bonus points are being given.

In spite of this however, the majority of game players have worked out surprisingly easy ways to get around the system. The simplest of this is when operators reset the playing hours, thus allowing the player who completes the allowed 5 hours to exit and then log in again.

Canadian Gambling FAQ

How popular is online gambling in Canada?

Gambling has always been extremely popular in Canada. A survey in 2005 found that around 75% of Canadians interviewed had gambled at least once in the past year. With the rising popularity of gambling on the web in the past decade, that number is probably even higher now! Thanks to a combination of a fairly progressive approach to gambling laws (more on that below), more and more Canadians are trying online gambling for the first time and contributing to what is now a multi-billion dollar industry in The Great White North.

Can I play on my mobile?

As we mentioned above, the law makes it impossible for online casino operators to base their offices or even their servers in Canada. However some are based in the Kahnawake Mohawk territory. So what does this mean for Canadians looking to gamble on the Internet? Actually, it means very little. There are hundreds and hundreds of international casino operators that welcome Canadian players, even allowing deposits and withdrawals in Canadian Dollars and offering titles/games that can be found in land-based Canadian casinos.

Are there any Canadian based online casinos?
