The Poker Scene in Indonesia
to its status as a Muslim country, any form of betting or gambling in
Indonesia is considered illegal. This includes the popular game of poker
which is largely controlled and prevented from surfacing in the
country. As with any other gambling activity, poker in Indonesia is
prohibited and its illegal dens are often raided by police authorities.
There are no legal channels to go by when searching for poker games in Indonesia, but despite the strong rules, some great poker players
have emerged from the country and went on to win at numerous tournaments
around the world. Anyone caught participating in gambling activities in
Indonesia will be whipped or caned as per its law and the country is
said to have the toughest punishment for gambling in the world.
Playing Poker Online in Indonesia
As a way to slip through the authorities, players can opt for online poker in Indonesia as it is less of a risk when you are playing from the
comfort and safety of your own home. There are no legitimate Indonesian
online poker sites which you can use but there are many foreign-hosted
poker websites to choose from. These foreign sites are not under the
purview of Indonesian authorities and therefore are safe to use without
running the risk of being caught and charged.
While many of them will be unavailable in the Indonesian language, many
foreign internet poker sites are more than happy to accept Indonesian
players. This will give players the benefit of playing many different
types of poker with real money, and participate in live tournaments over
the web with other players from all over the world.
