Lotteries, horse racing, boat racing, and cycling are all legal forms of gambling in South Korea. However, casino gambling is strictly prohibited. South Koreans face a three-year prison sentence if they’re caught at a casino. Any citizen found to have gambled in a casino abroad can also face prosecution on their return to the country. There are approximately 23 land-based casinos in the South Korea that are meant for tourists to gamble at. Only the Kangwon Land Casino, located near Pyeongchang, allows Koreans to gamble.
Singapore Citizens who wish to gamble in Singapore casinos must pay for a Casino Entry Levy prior to entering the casino premises. These entry levies allow patrons to enter the casino premises for a fixed period of time. A day-levy (24 hours) costs USD120, and an annual levy (365 days) costs ~USD2400. It is an offence for Singapore Citizens to enter the casino without a valid entry levy ticket.
Tourists do not need to purchase a Casino Entry Levy.
