Chapter VI

International Perspective

6.1 Countries across the globe have adopted three approaches in the matter of regulating gambling and betting activities. Some Countries, especially those which give primacy to religious morality, have taken the view that the role of government is to protect its citizens from the negative effects of such activities. The Countries that give primacy to religious morality often impose a complete ban on gambling, while others view gambling and betting as an industry to drive trade and revenue; and encourage tourism and employment.

Some countries also operate between these two extremes, striking a balance and permit gambling in a controlled and regulated environment; as a result, they earn substantial revenue from the tax imposed on such activities. This revenue can be utilised for promoting sports, cultural, charitable activities or any other activity aimed at the economic growth or development122.
