Internet gambling is largely unregulated in Pakistan. Despite a thriving online gambling culture, there are no licensed online casinos based in the country. Since gambling is generally prohibited by law, illegal bookies still ply their trade from hotel rooms which is a bit risky as police conduct raids every once in a while.
One thousand Pakistani rupees and/or a year behind bars is the punishment one is likely to get if caught taking part in illegal gambling. The enforcement has been weak if not non-existent. For this reason, Pakistan punters chose to gamble at offshore online sites most of which have games curated specifically for players in the region.
