DimJoeng Living Info Forums QA: Hong Kong Is online gambling in Hong Kong legal

Is online gambling in Hong Kong legal or illegal? I know it is legal for a limited gambling through the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

The only legal gambling monopoly is the Hong Kong Jockey Club, which is authorized to offer betting on lotteries, horse racing, and football over the Internet.

In 2002, the Hong Kong Legislative Council banned offshore gambling, including offshore Internet gambling, by passing the Gambling (Amendment) Ordinance. Offshore betting and bookmaking are now criminal offenses and provide for criminal penalties against offshore gambling agents that promote, facilitate, or advertise their products to Hong Kong residents.
