In Singapore, lottery and horserace betting are the only deemed legal gambling activities as of now. Other forms of betting such as casino gaming, online gambling, and sports betting are being regulated under the gambling laws in the country.
Meanwhile, land-based casinos such as Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands are only available for foreigners with the intention to boost the tourism industry. To compensate for this, the government strengthened the lottery and horse race betting in Singapore Pools for the locals to enjoy.
